Internet On American Airlines

American Airlines has added another income source. It is offering broadband service:

“… For $12.95, passengers on AA flights using its Boeing 767-200 will be able to surf the Net check e-mail, instant message and access corporate VPN accounts using the system by Aircell LLC.

The ground-based system – called GoGo – won’t enable any voice-based functions.”

The limitation of voice based functions seems in keeping with the recent cell phone bans made by Congress. It seems that VoIP will not be an alternative
