AA Picks AirCell For In-flight Wi-Fi


In-flight Wi-Fi seems to be all the rage these days. Lufthansa is bringing sexy back Wi-Fi back and Qantas is joining the fray, but when will domestic airlines quit quibbling about giving us food and blankets to realize there’s money to be made in Wi-Fi?

Huzzah! American Airlines has pulled their head out and teamed up with AirCell to bring Wi-Fi to passengers next year. Transcontinental passengers aboard Boeing 767-200 flying machines will have first crack at the in-flight Wi-Fi service. Apparently, AirCell and AA are ‘pioneering the last frontier of domestic Internet service.” Hmmm. Does this make any else chuckle? The cost will be announced when the service is ready to roll.
