Gogo Inflight supplies in-air online connectivity for Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier, United, US Airways, and Virgin America. According to a statement issued by the service, "Apple devices are still reigning above the clouds."
Factoids attached the Gogo Inflight's infographic, which was released on Thursday:
- Apple's iOS runs on 84 percent of the mobile devices -- note, not including laptops -- used to connect through Gogo, compared with 16 percent which run Android
- Tablets and smartphones make up 67 percent of the devices used to connect to Gogo Inflight's wi-fi networks
- Tablets are the most preferred device at 35 percent -- which could explain the iOS advantage, since iPads still control the tablet market. They are followed closely by laptops (33 percent) and smartphones (32 percent)
- Looking at just smartphones used in-air, iPhones account for nearly 3/4, at 73 percent, Android phones sit at 26 percent, and Blackberry and Windows Phone / Mobile account for less than 1 percent each
