Alaska Airlines 737 with Wi-Fi visits LGB
Alaska Airlines 737-790 N644AS (c/n 30795/1277) was used on the late afternoon SEA-LGB-SEA Alaska flight and appears to be sporting the new Wi-Fi dish on top of the aircraft. The service is currently in the trial phase and will be free for passengers at the start of the service trial. After a successful trial period, the airline will determine the schedule for rolling out the commercial availability of its wireless Internet service to its entire fleet of aircraft. N644AS appears so far to be the only Alaska plane I have seen with this dish.
