 United will begin outfitting more than 300 of its United and Continental aircraft with Wi-Fi connectivity in mid-2012. The carrier signed an agreement with Panasonic Avionics Corp. to offer satellite-based Wi-Fi, which is more robust than air-to-ground technology and will allow for video streaming. The technology also will allow for connectivity on long-haul international flights. The entire mainline fleet should offer Wi-Fi by 2015.
