    I saw on the enRoute magazine recently that 777's will start to get wifi on international flights with other planes getting it shortly (787s and 333s). I'm pleased by this and did not know this was the case until recently. Just sharing!

    Wonder what the fee will be and how good it will be. Hope they get a good vendor.

    Air Canada chose Gogo's 2Ku satellite solution for its long-haul fleet. It is currently installed on 11 aircraft - mostly AM but also DL, VS & G3 - and will grow to ~1200 aircraft based on current commitments. Performance has been pretty good so far.

    AC was supposed to go live with WIFI on overseas routes with the 777's by November 1 but that does not appear likely as I have not seen the bubble on the roof of any AC metal yet. The narrow bodies are now all equipped for WIFI and it works well except on Northern Canada flight paths.
