Japan Airlines and ANA are both on the wi-fi trail with the former national carrier in the lead.
Using a Panasonic system JAL will offer the service on flights between Tokyo (Narita) and New York (John F. Kennedy) on alternate days from 15 July 2012, and daily from early August. The airline expects to deliver this latest innovation on flights to and from Chicago, Los Angeles and Jakarta by the end of October this year, and London, Paris and Frankfurt by next spring.
Until 30 September 2012, customers in First and Executive Class on applicable flights can experience JAL Sky wi-fi with a complimentary one-hour trial of the new service. The normal usage fee is US$11.95 for the first hour, or US$21.95 for 24 hours upon activation. Customers who purchase 24 hours of usage can continue to enjoy the service within the time limit, on a connecting JAL international flight that has the system.
ANA, usually the most forward thinking of Japanese airlines, says that its SITA OnAir system will be available on its international routes from summer 2013. The service will initially be made available on the 777 and 767 fleets. www.jal.com www.ana.co.jp
