Starting November 10, American Airlines customers are being offered a new American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan in addition to high-speed Wi-Fi that is available on domestic flights.
American Airlines uses three Wi-Fi providers - Gogo, Panasonic, and Viasat. Previously, customers with monthly Wi-Fi subscriptions had access on Gogo and Viasat aircraft only. But now, the new Wi-Fi subscription plan is valid on all three Wi-Fi providers. Like the old monthly plan, the new one will also be priced at $49.95 ($59.95 for two devices) a month, plus tax.
In addition to being valid on all three Wi-Fi providers, the new Wi-Fi subscription plan will give access to Wi-Fi on most domestic flights operating within the United States, or between the United States and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Central America.
To buy the American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan, customers need to be an AAdvantage member, have an email and primary credit card with a U.S. billing address saved in their AAdvantage account. Customers with an existing monthly Gogo subscription will receive notice in mid-November with instructions on how to switch their current subscription to the new American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan.
The new American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan is only one way to save on inflight Wi-Fi. Customers can use a credit card that has a benefit for Wi-Fi purchases. For example, with the CitiBusiness® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® Mastercard®, a Credit-Land.com advertising partner, consumers can save 25% on American Airlines inflight Wi-Fi.
