American Airlines was looking for faster internet when in February the carrier filed a lawsuit against its existing Wi-Fi provider, Gogo.

The suit, filed in state district court in Tarrant County, said American had found a faster internet service provided by ViaSat and the carrier wanted to renegotiate or terminate its contract with Gogo.

The news sent shares of Gogo down 27 percent in one day.

Ultimately, American chose to go with both ViaSat and Gogo’s 2Ku technology for its in-flight internet service.

Here is the article on American’s lawsuit against Gogo.
