Now American Airlines has become the latest carrier to play around with wireless in the skies. Specifically, AA and Aircell have struck a deal to begin offering broadband internet on transcontinental flights.
How much quicker could a flight go if you could bring along your own computer and actually do some surfing? Flight time could become highly productive for business travelers, and a lot more entertaining for those just needing a bit of entertainment. And, all those social networking addicts wouldn't have to til landing to get their Facebook fix.
â€œWe understand that broadband connectivity is important to our business customers and others who want to use their PDAs and laptops for real-time, in-flight broadband communications,â€ said Dan Garton, Executive Vice President - Marketing for American Airlines. The cost for the connectivity has not been announced.
