In-flight WiFi provider Row 44 raises $37M

Row 44, the in-flight broadband provider installing satellite-based WiFi services for Southwest Airlines, said it raised $37 million in new equity. Row 44 has faced regulatory delays as its competitor Aircell, which offers inflight WiFi using terrestrial towers, has wrapped up airlines such as United, American and Delta. Southwest Airlines has previously announced that it plans to install Row 44's service on its entire fleet of more than 500 passenger aircraft. Article
