Travel News 01 Mar 2015

Japan Airlines (JAL) has announced it will introduce JAL Sky wifi on its B767-300ERs and B787-8s starting from March 3.= The service will be available on Europen, North American and long-haul Asian routes. 

There are two plans for passengers in all classes.

The JAL Sky wifi was first launched on B777-300ERs. It can be used on smartphones, notebook computers and other wireless LAN devices. Upon connection through wifi, passengers can browse the web, check emails, or update social media.

As signal is provided via satellite, wifi may be interrupted or unavailable due to poor weather conditions or location. For example, the service is not available over China due to its network permissions. There is also no signal above the border of Alaska and Canada and wifi service on Tokyo (Haneda) – London/Paris routes has been unavailable since January 28 as the satellite is out of service.
