American Airlines Launches In-Flight Internet

The Inquirer, InformationWeek

American Airlines will make broadband Internet service available on its Boeing 767-200 aircraft during nonstop flights between New York and San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Miami.The service, called Gogo, will be available on 15 planes for a 3-to-6-month trial period. Fliers will pay $12.95 on flights longer than three hours for full Internet access, including access to company virtual private networks (VPNs), though not VoIP phone service. Travelers can start using their WiFi devices, including laptops, smartphones, and PDAs, once their planes reach 10,000 feet.The Inquirer, InformationWeek
