United Airlines to offer in-flight WiFi

United Airlines has received approval from the FAA to install wireless Internet access in their planes which will allow users to surf the Internet while on the way to their US domestic destination. Verizon Communications, who already provides United with airfone technology, will be the ones partnering with the air carrier to bring the service to the planes.

The only thing standing in their way is the FCC, but once they receive approval they will start deploying WiFi in their B757-200 aircraft, which was used for internal testing.

Lufthansa Airline already has WiFi in their aircraft and charges their customers $29.99 for the whole flight or $9.99 for a half hour. So I’d expect to see around the same pricing for United’s in flight WiFi.
