Gogo expands AA deal; survey points to low adoption rates

|About: Gogo (GOGO)|By:, SA News Editor

Gogo (GOGO +0.9%) has expanded its existing deal with American Airlines to cover 30 new Bombardier CRJ-900 jets set to be used on regional routes. Gogo's in-flight Wi-Fi services are already available on 850+ American planes.

Meanwhile,a TripAdvisor survey of 4.3K+ U.S. air travelers found 90% of them rarely or never buy in-flight Wi-Fi, and only 3% always buy it when available. Unsurprisingly, cost was named the biggest drawback - for a single trip Gogo charges $5/hour or $16 for a 24-hour pass.

The survey data comes as AT&T hatches plans to launch an in-flight service it suggests will be priced aggressively.
