More than 250 RJs to be outfitted early in 2012

Delta has announced that it is expanding its in-flight Wi-Fi service to include a number of additional regional aircraft. The program is set to include Bombardier CRJ700 jets operated by Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines. The company claims to be the first carrier to offer Wi-Fi services across its entire mainline and two-class regional fleet, which include a total of more than 800 aircraft.

Other Delta Connection aircraft that will offer Wi-Fi service include the Embraer 170 and 175, along with the Bombardier CRJ900. Wireless Internet is set to be available on more than 80 percent of Delta's domestic fleet.

Delta expects to complete its Wi-Fi rollout by early 2012. Pricing starts from $5 for shorter single flights, with 24-hour passes available for $13 and monthly passes for $35.
