US Airways is expanding its Gogo® Wi-Fi inflight Internet service to its fleet of Airbus A319, A320 and Embraer 190 aircraft. With the expansion of inflight Internet across the Airbus A320 (A319, A320 and A321) family and Embraer 190 fleet, US Airways will have 90 percent of its mainline domestic fleet equipped with Wi-Fi Internet access. Wi-Fi will also be expanded to US Airways Express Embraer 170 and 175 aircraft operated by Republic Airlines. In addition to extending inflight Wi-Fi on more flights, the airline announced that it will launch Gogo Vision™, a streaming video product that will allow passengers to watch movies and television shows on their own Wi-Fi enabled device.
US Airways is scheduled to begin the expansion of Gogo Wi-Fi on Embraer aircraft this summer and Airbus A320 family aircraft in the fall of 2012, and expects to complete installation by the end of 2013. Gogo Vision launch will follow the installation and retrofit of new ATG-4 technology on Wi-Fi equipped aircraft.
Why do you think US opted to not install it on the CR9/CR7 and is US the first carrier to launch GoGo Vision on almost all of its mainline aircraft? I've seen that AA has this on their 767-200s, but am unsure if it has been expanded beyond those 15 aircraft.
