American Airlines ends lawsuit over Gogo's internet speeds

Only a little more than a week after suing in-flight internet provider Gogo over service speeds, American Airlines has dropped the suit, according to a statement released today by Gogo. An American Airlines spokesperson confirmed that it had dismissed the suit without prejudice.

American had argued that Gogo failed to live up to the terms of a contract, and sued to leave the agreement. The airline said it had found another internet provider, ViaSat, offering better service – and thus, under its contract, could exit from its agreement with Gogo if the service provider did not improve its offerings.

But the suit has ended, at least for the time, with Gogo pledging to soon offer another, competing service package for the aircraft covered by American's contract. The airline spokesperson said the company would assess any new offerings from Gogo before moving forward. "We originally notified Gogo of a competitor's offering, and we will evaluate all of our options," the American spokesperson told The Verge. "No decision has been made."
