American to expand Internet access to more planes

American Airlines today said it would expand its experimental in-flight Gogo Internet access service to 300 more planes in its fleet over the next two years. The flying WiFi hot spots will be available by the end of 2010 on the airline's MD-80 and 737-800jets. American started the test of the service just on its long-haul, mostly transcontinental 767 fleet last year. Read a little more about the plans in an article in the trade magazine Information Week.
