Two Japanese airlines, Japan Airlines and All Nipon Airways, will start offering Wi-Fi services on international flights, with Japan Airlines launching the service on July 15 on flights between Tokyo and New York, every other day until August 5 and then every day after that. One hour with Japan Airlines will cost $11.95 and 24 hours of service will cost $21.95. However, the service will be offered for free through September 1 for those passengers flying in Elite or First Class.
All Nipon Airlines will not begin offering their Wi-Fi service until next year and will be equipping their Boeing 777 and 767 planes for certain routes with Wi-Fi capability. They have not yet announced whether the Wi-Fi service will be available on their Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Wi-Fi service has been slow to come to airlines and passengers, due at least in part to the expense of such an operation. It costs airlines more than $100,000 to install and implement the service.
