The struggling GoGo Inflight Internet service has a new angle: cross-airline monthly pricing. The new $34.95-a-month plan permits you to use GoGo on any of the 800 commercial aircraft where it’s available.

Meanwhile, US Airways has begun rolling out some Airbus A321s equipped with the Gogo in-flight WiFi service. Prices range from $4.95 to $12.95. The airline says all of its 51 Airbus A321s will be fitted with Gogo by June 1. Frontier Airlines also says it will install Aircell’s Gogo in-flight WiFi on its 32 Embraer jets, but will not install the service on its fleet of Airbus jets. Those planes are equipped with live, at-seat TV service.

And speaking of in-flight WiFi, Southwest Airlines has also begun installing WiFi service on its flights. Southwest’s WiFi is a satellite-based system from a company called Row 44.
