You won’t need to pay to stream your Apple Music songs and videos on domestic American Airlines flights starting on February 1, 2019.  And if you don’t have Apple Music, you can get a free trial that should start right on your flight.

Typically, Wi-Fi on American Airlines flights costs ~$10.  But now it’s free to stream your Apple Music subscription.

This is a pretty cool partnership and I hope other airlines try to match it.

You’re likely reading this because you find yourself on American Airlines flights quite a bit.  The fastest way to free American Airlines flights is by collecting American Airlines miles from generous sign-up bonuses:

American Airlines Is Improving Its In-Flight Entertainment

Over on the Apple Music blog, Janelle Anderson, vice president of Global Marketing at American Airlines said, “Our guests want to make the most of their time when flying us.  That’s why we’re investing in faster Wi-Fi, a variety of entertainment options, and why we’re so excited to introduce Apple Music to more of our customers.”

Don’t Have an Apple Music Subscription?

When you sign-up onboard an American Airlines flight, you can get free access for 3 months.

Other Airlines Should Match This!

Airlines have steadily chipped away at the amenities that used to come with your paid ticket.  So I hope this is a partial reversal of that trend.

I fly JetBlue a lot domestically, in part because you get free Wi-Fi.  Usually it’s good enough to stream music — from any service you want — not just Apple.

But I like that American Airlines is trying to differentiate their domestic flights with this Apple Music partnership and I hope it’s a sign of more good things to come!

I do love and follow MMS for a long time, but the whole “Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)” system on AA has been terrible, Their WiFi is atrocious. I am a 2 Million Miler +, and I have not yet been able to stream a complete Movie on AA. Have tried on multiple devices, Android, IOS, Windows, Chrome. I end up bringing my own entertainment, which I could do on any Low Cost Carrier (which AA seems to be trying to become.) Have you guys tested the performance of these “improvements?”
Nonetheless, I am extremely grateful for the information you so generously share with us.
