  • By route, flights from LAX to SFO and JFK have the most Wi-Fi, with Atlanta-Orlando the third most connected US route.

  • In economy, 100% of Virgin America flights and all United p.s. flights with Wi-Fi have power.
  • Most American Airlines flights with Wi-Fi also have power (515 out of 541 Wi-Fi equipped 200 flights).
