American Airlines to test in-flight Wi-Fi on 25th?

Am. Air Wi-Fi testing

American Airlines will begin testing in-flight Wi-Fi technology on June 25th, a report claims. The technology is expected to debut on a round-trip flight between New York City's JFK and Los Angeles' LAX, and should it be successful, it could be quickly activated on number of other AA aircraft. Some 15 Boeing 767-200 planes are said to already have Wi-Fi installed, it just being a matter of activating the routers at will.

The airline is allegedly using AirCell technology, which will be marketed under the "Gogo" name. Wi-Fi should eventually be $10 per ticket on short flights and $13 on extended ones; in the meantime, any test flights are expected to offer access for free. Other companies in the process of deploying Wi-Fi on American flights include JetBlue and Virgin America.
