American Airlines & Lexus To Offer Free Wi-Fi

If you are planning to fly American Airlines from November 1 through November 7, you may be in for a special treat. The airline and Lexus are starting the season of giving early by offering free Wi-Fi in flight on equipped aircraft. The Gogo Inflight Internet service lets customers connect to work or home by offering access to email, social media sites, e-shopping, news, and much more from laptops, smartphones, and PDAs.

"American and Lexus want to give customers a little something special this fall by offering free Wi-Fi," said John Tiliacos, American's Managing Director - Onboard Products. "We continue to focus on improving the customer's experience and with this special offer, we hope our customers enjoy this opportunity to connect inflight for work or fun as the busy holiday season kicks into gear."


To take advantage of the offer, you'll need to enter the promotion code 2010LEXUSLS to connect to the service. More details about Wi-Fi on American are available at www.aa.com/wifi. The offer coincides with the introduction of the new 2010 Lexus LS line.

American Airlines launched onboard Wi-Fi in August 2008. The service is currently available on American's Boeing 767-200 aircraft and select MD-80 aircraft.

Now this is awesome! Now if only this service would become permanent. Hoping Southwest Airlines picks up on this. Free wifi would greatly increase their customer base!

Free is a term that has has escaped the airline industry.  Thank god for Jet Blue.  I doubt the wifi will stay free.  The only way it would stay free is if the phone companies kicked in with aiding the airlines.

Mental, you're being too kind on them. The airline industry has been the exact opposite of free, burdening their flyers with baggage fees, increased pet fees, higher mile conversion penalties, higher flight change fees, etc, etc.

Southwest has bucked the trend and have reaped the benefits.
