  • The majority of Alaska Airlines’ flights offer Wi-Fi onboard.
  • All AirTran flights are Wi-Fi enabled.
  • In-flight Internet is now available on most planes flying in the continental U.S. on American Airlines. Travelers can check if their plane is Wi-Fi enabled within 24 hours of departure.
  • All of Delta’s mainline planes and about a third of the regional jets are enabled.
  • Frontier Airlines offers Internet on its Embraer 190 aircraft, and frequent flyers can buy unlimited Wi-Fi for $24.95 per month.
  • JetBlue says it's on track to have its entire fleet Wi-Fi-enabled by early next year.
  • Southwest is in the process of adding Wi-Fi to all of its planes. Internet is $5 all day, per device.
