Of all the airlines worldwide, Emirates, United and Lufthansa lead the pack offering Wi-Fi on long haul routes, by total number of ASMs.


Last year, best Wi-Fi was available on 6% of flights. That number has since grown to 7.2% of in-flight Wi-Fi offered worldwide today, a number expected to increase significantly in 2017.


In 2016, non-U.S. airlines committed to quality in-flight Wi-Fi at a rate that dramatically increased from prior years, while U.S. airlines wrapped up multiple installation programs, ensuring in-flight Wi-Fi is now commonplace on U.S. airlines and increasing prevalent on non-U.S. airlines. There are now very few U.S. airlines with Wi-Fi installations still pending. U.S. airlines now offer flyers at least a chance of Wi-Fi on 83% of ASMs, an increase of 8.7 percentage points from last year.
