    Delta Air Lines announced today in a press release that it will soon start rolling out broadband Wi-Fi access for its entire domestic mainline fleet of more than 330 planes. The access, which is provided courtesy of a partnership with Aircell, will cost $9.95 on flights of three hours or less and $12.95 on flights of more than three hours. The first planes to have access will be Delta's 133 MD88/90 planes, with coverage expanding to the rest of the fleet early next year.

    Well it's domestic only in that press release :/

    BUT I do know that virgin have been in talks to outfit their fleet. SADLY last time I looked, and I do hope they've reconsidered :/, they were about to buy the less good of the two main systems :(

    The good one is satellite based so it'll work across the atlantic, but virgin were looking to buy the cell tower based one that wouldnt :(
