Apple and American Airlines launch in-flight Apple Music without paying for Wi-Fi

It's fairly easy to get bored during a plane ride, so Apple is trying to make things a little more bearable by enabling Apple Music on domestic flights in the United States, at least those carried out by American Airlines. Best of all, you won't even have to pay extra for it.

The new capability is part of a partnership with American Airlines, and it means you can listen to any song you want on Apple Music in flights that have Viasat Wi-Fi. Of course, you'll need an Apple Music subscription for that, but the additional Wi-Fi charge will no longer be necessary, which should be especially great news for frequent travelers. If you're on a Verizon Unlimited plan, you might not even need to pay for Apple Music either.

You can listen to any song on the platform, access curated playlists, and even tune in to the Beats 1 Global Livestream during your flight. Doing this is pretty simple - you'll simply need to connect to the in-flight Wi-Fi and open Apple Music to find whatever you want to listen to.

Apple's announcement says American Airlines is "the first" airline to offer Apple Music in its flight, so it could be looking to expand this offering to other companies, and hopefully other countries as well. For now, however, you'll need to have your own music ready if you're not flying in the U.S.
