Free Wi-Fi is closer to coming to the New York City area's major airports.

   The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is set to vote Wednesday on a plan to offer free access at Newark, Kennedy and LaGuardia airports, to a point. The proposal cleared a committee on Wednesday morning.

   Wi-Fi would be free for 30 minutes, then travelers would have to pay $7.95 for the day.

   It currently costs passengers $4.95 an hour or $7.95 for 24 hours to access the Internet at the airports.

Ten years ago, the Transportation Security Agency didn't exist.  It was created in the months after 9/11 to close the security loopholes that had allowed 19 terrorists to board and hijack the planes used in the attacks.  It also forever changed the way we fly.
