Netflix has been trying to revamp the airline industry's languid entertainment technology for quite a while. In 2015, the company partnered with Virgin America to supply free Wi-Fi onboard select flights, and similar deals have been inked in the last two years with other carriers, including Aeromexico, Qantas, and Virgin Australia. Until now, those partnerships have provided your best chance to watch Netflix on a plane equipped with a strong enough Wi-Fi connection.
To broaden its horizons, though, Netflix wants to offer stronger Wi-Fi on more planes, enabling passengers to stream their favorite shows without the frequent interruptions you're probably used to. Even if you're not a Netflix member, the in-flight amenity would allow you to sign up for a trial, so anyone onboard can stream until their heart is content.
