AIRCELL, the main supplier of in-flight wi-fi in the United States, says that the installation is proving to be a great success with about 1,000 aircraft already fitted for use on domestic services and the figure likely to double by the end of net year. That is roughly two-thirds of the mainline North American fleet, which excludes regional jets. It costs about USD100,000 a 'plane to install the Aircell system, which adds only 300 pounds of weight. In Europe the problems are legal due to competing national airwave policies. It is of course a ready made excuse for carriers not to introduce the equipment during what is a very difficult economic period. www.aircell.com
