Gogo (AirCell) has recently announced a monthly subscription to access WiFi from any airplane that has Gogo service (American, United, Virgin, Delta, AirTran, Air Canada). Gogo has charged per flight ($.495 - $12.95) and had a 30 day pass ($39.95), however, this is the first monthly subscription that automatically renews until you cancel it.
The Gogo service has EVDO Rev A towers spread across the US, BUT they are aiming up towards the sky. The airline has a 3G to WiFi Router installed which provides the WiFi on the plane. This is very similar to the 3G Routers that 3Gstore.com sells (but are not the same).
For anyone that travels a lot, having WiFi to stay busy is a life saver. We had a chance to do some Gogo Testing recently and it worked very well.
