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.

New York, are you ready?

We’re building Momentum: an all killer, no filler event this November.

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.
