At long last, "you are now free to surf the intarwebz while flying." Okay, so maybe it has been possible in the past, but American Airlines
is taking a huge leap forward in the US market today by giving passengers aboard long-haul Boeing 767-200 flights the option to hop online during the trip. The GoGo service, which is being provided by Aircell
, will charge customers $12.95 for access to the world wide web, though Reuters
points out that VoIP calling is "not available." Delta, US Airways, et al
. -- time to get with the program.
