When You place a Request, You agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and to pay for that Request.

A. WI-FI SERVICES SPECIFIC TERMS
How does the Wi-Fi Service operate and what are its limitations?
You as a user connect to the Wi-Fi Service using Wi-Fi technology aboard the Airline's aircraft. The Wi-Fi Service uses satellite communications to connect to the aircraft and the satellites use various ground stations around the world to connect to the relevant servers and the Internet.
The goal is for every user to have a quality experience. Due to the limited bandwidth available on an aircraft, which is being shared by multiple users, the Wi-Fi Service is designed for basic web browsing, online shopping, email and intranet access through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and it is not designed to handle transmission of large amounts of data, such as in large file transfers (including downloading/uploading movies or videos), Voice over IP (VoIP) applications or streaming video. To help provide a quality experience to all users and for the comfort of fellow passengers or as required to comply with applicable law, limits may be placed on the bandwidth available to individual users to allows the service to be shared with other users, the ability to access or use certain applications and services, including VoIP applications and/or streaming video applications. To help with this, You must Comply with the Wi-Fi Usage Policy.
The network is managed in a manner that does not discriminate based on a website's content or its provider to the extent reasonably possible to do so. We and Our Third Party Providers reserve the right to limit access to the Service or certain applications for network management purposes or as required by applicable law. Content filtering is applied at the request of the Airline or as required by applicable law.
The Wi-Fi Service is generally available for use when an aircraft is in flight except when the Wi-Fi Service is down for maintenance, updates or upgrades. In some cases, the Wi-Fi Service is only available when a flight is above a certain altitude. Availability of the Wi-Fi Service is always at the discretion of Airline and an aircraft's captain. In addition, government authorities may also restrict the availability of the Wi-Fi Service, access to certain features or applications and/or access to and use of certain websites when an aircraft is in that country's airspace.
Due to a variety of factors, Wi-Fi Service coverage, speed and quality may vary there are areas in which there may be sporadic or no coverage, the Wi-Fi Service may be disrupted due to altitude, weather, flight path, solar (electromagnetic) storms or similar interference and issues with satellite or terrestrial backhaul may degrade, limit or prevent operation of the Wi-Fi Service.
The connection through which You create an Account and use the Wi-Fi Service is an SSL encrypted link. Even so, it is recommended that sensitive or private information not be accessed via or transmitted over the Wi-Fi Service. The Wi-Fi Service does support secure VPN access. If You have access to a VPN, it is recommended that You use it for greater security. Please also see System Requirements in the "Systems Requirements" section below.
The Wi-Fi Service accesses and displays content that in most cases isn't ours or Our Third Party Providers, including information that may appear on Our websites or Our Third Party Provider's site, which is provided by the Airline. Such third party content is the sole responsibility of the person or entity that publishes it or makes it available. In some cases content may be reviewed or screened to determine whether it may be illegal or violate ours or any Third Party Provider's policies, and content may be removed, filtered or refuse to be displayed if it is believed may violate ours or any Third Party Provider's policies or the law, but that does not mean that that there is a review or filter any specific content.
The Wi-Fi Service is intended only as a convenience and it is not intended to be used for any medical, safety, emergency or any other uses where reliability and accuracy are critical.
How long does my purchase last?
The duration of Your use of the Wi-Fi Services shall expire dependent upon the type of pass You purchase.
Time-based Passes: If You are purchasing an hourly or duration of flight pass, the pass is valid for that period only. The pass commences at the time of Request and ceases on the aircraft landing.
MB-based Passes: If You are purchasing a pass with a maximum MB usage, the pass is valid until the allocated MB is depleted. The pass commences at the time of Request and ceases on the aircraft landing.
Combination Passes: If You are purchasing a pass with both a time and maximum MB allocation, the pass then expires when one or both of the allocation is reached.
Notwithstanding the "Cancellations and Refunds Section", You acknowledge and agree that once We start providing the Wi-Fi Service to You, You will not be able to cancel Your Purchase and seek a refund. This does not in any way affect any statutory rights that You have under any local law that is directly applicable to You and Your purchase.
