Do any US/Canadian airlines have wireless internet flying within the US and Canada?

I have alot of US/Canada domestic flying to do in the next month and want to choose an airline where I can connect onboard. I thought I heard that AC and UA have internet but maybe it is not working yet.

Question can Connexion by Boeing be installed on Airbus Jets? If not, then does Airbus have a similar product?

I read an article a few weeks ago where some researchers claimed that wireless signals can interfere with the planes avionics systems. I think there will be lot more research before wireless anything is allowed to be used onboard planes in flight

United is indeed in the process of getting the system. A demo p.s. 757 will be operational soon for certification trials.

Indeed it can. SAS has it installed in all their longhaul aircrafts, which consist only of Airbusses.


For a complete list of flights equipped, take a look at http://www.connexionbyboeing.com

Thanks you very much CPH. Why haven't more airlines jumped at this opportunity to provide inflight online access? Also it seems as if the only One World airline (almost) to provide this is JAL, other than that Star Alliance seems to have a number of its members providing this great convenience.

Bit late for that  silly 

SAS long haul birds already have the network fitted, so do many of the SQ fleet  Smile
