American Airlines adopts Wi-Fi provider

In-flight Wi-Fi is all the rage these days, with everyone from Lufthansa to Qantas jumping on the bandwagon. The problem is that American carriers have been slow to adopt the technology, leaving us suspended in mid-air with nary a Wi-Fi signal to be found. Never fear, though, as American Airlines has stepped up to the plate. The iconic American airline has partnered with AirCell to bring Wi-Fi to its passengers. AirCell will be equipping AA’s fleet of 767-200s sometime next year, most of which are destined for transcontinental travel, with domestic aircraft following suit shortly thereafter. Prices, as expected, will not be announced until the service formally launches, but don’t expect this relative luxury to come cheaply.
