American Airlines tool tells you which flights have WiFi on board.

AmericanAmerican Airlines have helpfully released a free widget tool that lets its customers know which flights are equipped with WiFi and which aren’t.

“We are pleased to have the Wi-Fi Widget tool available for our customers,” said Doug Backelin, American’s manager of inflight communications and technology.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

l”We realize how important inflight connectivity is to travelers and believe the new widget will make identifying Wi-Fi equipped aircraft easy.”

American said that it now has 165 of its aircraft equipped with Aircell’s Gogo equipment and service. That’s just over one-fourth of its fleet.

The widget, which isn’t really a widget but for a nifty little online tool, is available at aa.com/wifiwidget.
