Phones and electronic gadget
You can use your mobile phone, laptop computer and other electronic gadget aboard until advised by the flight crew, but cell phone calls aren’t allowed during flight.
Please keep these things in mind all along taxi, takeoff and landing:
Put small devices in airplane mode and each of two hold or place the device under your seat
Laptops, implicit reality headsets and other large items cannot be held and should be turned off and put away.
Inflight Wi-Fi is significantly cheaper if you buy it before you board your flight. Currently, American Airlines offers pre-flight Wi-Fi packages for domestic flights — but not international travel. An all-day pass costs $16 if purchased in advance. Travelers should compare that rate to $12 for only two hours if purchased on board, and $19 for the length of a single flight. Passes bought in advance are good for 12 months from the date of their purchase.
On both domestic as well as international flights, Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi packages are available for purchase once you are on board. as usual, $12 buys you 2 hours of Internet access, $17 buys you four hours, and $19 gets you Wi-Fi for the length of the flight.
With that, the airline is also passing out seat-back entertainment. Travelers will instead be able to watch movies, television shows, and live TV from their personal devices — and for these services, there won’t be a need to purchase inflight Wi-Fi. Only travelers who want to send e-mails and surf the web will have to purchase a Wi-Fi package.
