American Airlines announced today that it will expand its entertainment-on-demand video-streaming service to 400 of its Wi-Fi-enabled planes by the end of 2012.
During a flight, a traveler can go to American Airlines’ in-flight Wi-Fi home page to select and view movies and TV shows on his/her notebook computer. Once the plane lands, a customer can view his/her selected movies and TV shows for up to 24 hours and 72 hours, respectively, through the carrier’s Wi-Fi home page. Customers will be charged $3.99 per movie and 99 cents per TV show.
American Airlines’ entertainment-on-demand is available currently on transcontinental flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Los Angeles or San Francisco.
