United Airlines goes with Aircell's Gogo inflight WiFi service

Aircell announced United Airlines will become its fifth Gogo Inflight Internet customer. The airline is rolling out the service on 13 Boeing 757 p.s. aircraft that fly between John F. Kennedy International Airport and California's two largest airports--Los Angeles International Airport and San Francisco International Airport. United and Aircell will assess customer feedback to determine additional rollout plans, Aircell said. The service will be available for a flat fee of $12.95.

Delta Air Lines officially launched Aircell's Gogo service on six of its aircraft in December. American Airlines and Virgin America have already deployed the service while Air Canada has announced its intention to launch the service.
