JAL to expand B777 in-flight Internet service


Japan Airlines (JAL) and Panasonic Avionics have been collaborating on providing the JAL Sky Wi-Fi in-flight internet service on its Boeing 777-300ERs operated on North America and Europe routes, starting July 2012. This news follows JAL’s recent agreement with Panasonic to aggressively install the service on its international Boeing 767-300ERs, Boeing 777-200ERs and Boeing 787s operated on its Southeast Asia and other international routes.

JAL SKY Wi-Fi on international routes is provided through the onboard Panasonic eXConnect system, which allows customers in every cabin class to access the internet and navigate the social networking service (SNS) using wireless LAN devices during the flight. The service – which does not have volume limits – is available for a fee, with one-hour plans and an unlimited time option.
