Airline continues to expand in-flight connectivity

American Airlines has reasserted its commitment to expand its in-flight Wi-Fi program. After first announcing expansion plans in May, the company now promises to outfit its entire Boeing 767 fleet with Gogo Wi-Fi and a new 'Entertainment On Demand' system for streaming movies and TV shows.

The on-demand content is said to include more than 100 movies and TV shows. The videos are streamed from remote servers, enabling users to continue watching a selection even after the flight lands. The system provides 24 hours to finish a movie, or 72 hours to complete a TV show.

Users are not required to sign up for Wi-Fi to access the on-demand listings, which carry prices of $0.99 per TV show or $3.99 per movie. Supported devices include notebook computers, Android devices.

The airline will continue to expand its in-flight Wi-Fi and entertainment services through 2012. [via TechCrunch]
