Apple Music is one of the best music streaming services for Apple devices users. Apple Music is also available on the Android ecosystem for the music lovers. Now, the Apple Music subscribers can access the service for free from the Wifi network available on the American Airlines flights. Apple announced the partnership with the American Airlines to provide free wifi access for allowing users to listen to the Apple Music content while in the plane.
All of the American Airlines Flights have the Viasat Satellite in-flight Wifi service. Although the service is not free, the Apple Music users can get it for free to listen to the music. This is the first time Apple partnered with the Airline company to provide free services to their users. The users can access the Apple Music using in-flight Wifi from American Airlines on every supported device like the PC, iPhone, iPad or even the Android smartphones free of cost. The service will start from the 1st of February for all of the users who are flying with the American Airlines. The service is restricted only for accessing the Apple Music service. Accessing any other website will incur you data charges as per the in-flight wifi plans.
This is one of the best things for the Apple Music lovers as they can listen to their playlists while using the free in-flight wifi service. But, according to the tech experts, this move violates the principles of Net Neutrality as providing free access to certain apps and services is not permitted. The several American States like Californa have already banned the services that violate the Net Neutrality principles, but as there is no such law for in-flight systems, Apple Music users can access it for free.
