FORT WORTH, Texas (STL.News) Relax, unwind and get into the holiday spirit on your next American Airlines flight with new featured movies and one easy portal to access inflight Wi-Fi.
Holiday movies for free
American has launched its annual holiday channel featuring holiday classics playing now including A Christmas Story, Home Alone and Elf. All inflight entertainment on board American flights is free. Customers can stream a library of movies, music, TV shows to their phone, tablet or laptop. There is no need for customers to buy Wi-Fi to access inflight entertainment from the American Airlines app.
Holiday music helps celebrate the holiday season too, and Apple Music is the perfect soundtrack with popular curated playlists like “Holiday Hits”, “R&B for the Holidays”, and “Children’s Christmas”. Passengers can access Apple Music for free in flight on Via-Sat equipped flights to stream over 70 million songs ad-free, music videos, and live original shows hosted by the world’s top music hosts and artists on Apple Music 1, Apple Music Hits, and Apple Music Country.
For customers who need to connect during their flights to browse the internet or check email, high-speed Wi-Fi is available on domestic flights for as little as $10. The airline is also offering the new American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan beginning Nov.10 for those who plan to travel more frequently.
The new American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan enables customers to purchase a subscription that’s valid on all three Wi-Fi providers: Gogo, Panasonic and Viasat. This plan includes access to Wi-Fi on most domestic flights operating between airports within the United States, or between the United States and Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Central America.
This new subscription plan will replace the Gogo monthly subscription, previously only valid on on Gogo- and Viasat-equipped aircraft. Customers with a monthly Gogo subscription will receive notice beginning Nov. 16 with instructions on how to move their current subscription plan to the American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan.
To purchase or move to the American Airlines Wi-Fi Subscription Plan, customers need to be an AAdvantage member and have an email and primary credit card with a U.S. billing address saved in their AAdvantage account.
American recently began the rollout of aainflight.com, a new inflight Wi-Fi portal that provides a unified entertainment and connectivity experience. The portal enables customers to use their AAdvantage credentials and stored credit card information to purchase flight passes for internet access on aircraft equipped with Gogo and Viasat internet services. If customers don’t have an AAdvantage account and prefer not to sign up for one, they can continue to purchase individual flight passes as a guest.
