Gogo to launch in flight broadband on some transcontinental routes

Om Malik reports that Gogo will have broadband on some American and Virgin flights from San Francisco to NYC soon.

Gogo certainly deserves an award for the most overhyped intro clip in some time here:

In flight broadband is a great idea for business and perhaps student travelers and I'm looking forward to it but it's not at all clear to me that most travelers will see enough benefit to fork over $10 per flight so they can pull the daily toll of work emails and spam or surf during the in flight movie. That said I'm rooting for ya Gogo!
