[Avionics Today 02-23-2016] Gogo announced on Feb. 22 that American Airlines has dismissed the declaratory judgment action it filed against the company on Feb. 12, which aimed to drop Gogo’s In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) service.
American Airlines had originally stated in the lawsuit that the earlier generation Wi-Fi systems on board American’s fleet were too limited and that better options existed for the carrier.
"Alternative service providers are offering faster, more reliable, and less expensive satellite-based Wi-Fi services to airlines like United, Southwest, JetBlue, and Virgin America," American Airlines said in its suit, which has now been dismissed.
