My kids are autistic and there is no way they will stay calm for the short period of traveling from London to Glasgow without YouTube.
I have read an article the other day about high-speed Internet on some airlines that you can stream Netflix (and probably YouTube) during the flight. I can't seem to find the article but I recall that it was an American airline and British Airways. However, the BA website says nothing about it.
Any idea if such facility exist with any UK airlines?
- their goal is to have 90% of their aircraft connected by 2019. Until then, you can't know for sure if Wi-Fi is available on the specific aircraft or flight. Also, as usual, focus is on long-haul aircraft first.
contrary to what some US airlines do, they don't seem to advertise in advance which flights will or will not have Wi-Fi
you can only use it above 10 000 feet, which for a Glasgow-London flight is going to be a quite short period of time, especially once you take out the time to actually connect to the service, pay for it, etc.
they aim to deliver 1 Mbps on the "Stream" package, which is quite low and will probably deliver a low-quality experience
