American Airlines launches WiFi service delivered by Cloud

Are you suffering from a sort of empty-nest syndrome now that you’ve moved all your data to the cloud? Now you can book a trip to visit it aboard American Airlines. The carrier is the first in the U.S. to offer full in-flight broadband (minus telephony), initially on the Boeing 767-200 aircraft making nonstop flights between New York and San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, and New York and Miami. The service, Gogo from Aircell, costs a flat $12.95 for flights over three hours ($9.95 for shorter trips, once the service expands), and speeds should be about what you get from earthbound mobile wireless. Cruchgear’s Peter Ha is blogging aboard the JFK to LAX flight, and reports things are working pretty well (except for the cabin attendant spilling water on his laptop).
