AF/KL have today announced that they will introduce WIFI on board two B773 planes (one each) for a pilot of one year in 2013. Passengers will benefit from in-flight data connection and a dedicated in-flight website. Further introduction into the entire will be decided when the results of this pilot and customer feedback are in.

Quoting goosebayguy (Reply 1): Strikes me as being overly cautious. A full years trial when surely they know the experience of other airlines? Soemtimes you just wish management would make a deicion and go for it!
I bet it costs a lot to install, and the GSM gear is probably pretty heavy - not a small decision. Depends a lot on their business travelers as well. Not every airline has the same premium demographic.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???
TK started doing this a while ago and will be on 12 x 77Ws and 10 x A333s.
TK also has liveTV (I think only a handful of channels now) but even over the Atlantic.
Free wi-fi and live soccer was awesome on my IST-JFK flight last month.
