In no way is it news that in-flight WiFi sucks. You shell out $16, only to not be able to stream videos. Sure, it's a marvel of science that you're scrolling Thrillist.com (shameless plug), 7 miles in the sky in a metal tube while drinking $8 beers. But still. Now, however, even the nation's largest airline is fed up with the garbage Internet connections -- and it's suing over it.
American Airlines has filed a lawsuit against GoGo, saying that its service is significantly slower than competitor ViaSat, according to a report by CNN. Per the lawsuit, American wishes to break its contract with GoGo to partner up with ViaSat, which already provides Internet service for United, JetBlue and Virgin America.
The lawsuit claims that AA's contract with GoGo includes a provision that allows AA to break the agreement if the company receives a better offer from a competitor, The Star-Ledger reports. AA notified GoGo of its intent to break the deal earlier this month, which GoGo said was invalid. The terms of the contract allegedly give GoGo the opportunity to make a counteroffer to AA, whose current contract runs through 2018. This led to AA filing a lawsuit in Texas to get GoGo's ass in gear over offering a new proposal.
