    Delta Outfitting Entire Domestic Fleet With Aircell's GoGo In-Flight Wi-Fi Service by End of 2009

    It’s the dawning of a new age, folks. In-flight Wi-Fi is slowly rolling out across domestic airlines in the US and Delta is looking to capitalize on it by outfitting their entire domestic fleet of aircrafts with Aircell’s GoGo service. American Airlines and Virgin America have been on-board for some time (though they have yet to launch the service) and this is pretty big news coming… Read More

  • Delta to roll out Aircell's GoGo service across entire fleet

    This is certainly big news and it’s coming from an airline that’s been hampered with bankruptcy problems in recent years, but things are looking up for Delta. In April they announced that NW Airlines would be absorbed into the fold to become the world’s largest carrier and today they’ve announced that their entire domestic fleet will offer broadband Wi-Fi by the end of… Read More

  • Possible hands on with Aircell's GoGo Inflight Wi-Fi service

    Possible hands on with Aircell's GoGo Inflight Wi-Fi service

    American Airlines is quite possibly the most horrendous airline on the face of the planet. I’m waiting for my flight to LA at Gate 12 in JFK. I was supposed to leave at 7:15 ET, but it’s been pushed out to 7:50 ET. So feel free to swing by and say hello and possibly buy me a beer. Although, I don’t see a bar anywhere around. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that my… Read More

  • Mossberg reviews Aircell's in-flight Wi-Fi service, GoGo

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/452319854 We’ve been a huge proponent of Aircell’s GoGo service for months now and we’re tickled pink to learn that GoGo will finally be launching sometime next month with American Air. I’m extremely jealous that Walt got to test out the service before all of us, but that’s just the way these things work out… Read More

    Aircell gets FAA approval for WiFi in airplanes

    Aircell, those guys who want to put WiFi on airplanes across the country, finally received the FAA certifications it needed to start building its equipment into airplanes proper. It recently finished its nationwide network of transponders that would bounce the signals up to the airplane, and with this last hurdle out of the way, we could conceivably start seeing WiFi-equipped aircraft this year.

  • Aircell completes GoGo network

    Aircell completes GoGo network

    Aircell announced today the completion of the GoGo network. We’re stoked on this because it means unadulterated (no VoIP) in-flight Wi-Fi. American Airlines recently installed the Aircell ATG system on one their Boeing 767-200 planes. It’s currently being tested and should deploy throughout the fleet sometime this year. Virgin America is also slated to roll out the Aircell service this… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Discount flights on Virgin America

    CrunchDeals: Discount flights on Virgin America

    Airline fares? Yeah, I’m telling you about discount fares on Virgin America because it’s the geekiest domestic airline out there right now. No need to use SeatGuru to find out which seats have outlets because every seat on VA has an outlet. RED is a pretty badass in-flight entertainment suite considering you don’t have to pay for it like you would on other airlines. Oh, and wait… Read More

    Continental announces in-flight Wi-Fi

    Today Continental announced that they will be offering Wi-Fi, but it will be the same crippled mess that you’ll find on JetBlue. It’s not all bad, though. The agreement with LiveTV will also bring 36 channels of live TV directly to your seat via DirecTV. First-class passengers will receive the service (TV) for free while passengers in economy-class will have to muster up $6. The Wi-Fi… Read More

    The Wall Street Journal reported Colorado-based aeronautical communications company, AirCell, will be able to bring WiFi access to airplanes soon.
