    Hi, due to poor planning, I’ll be on a flight on the 17th March to the USA with Aer Lingus. I’m hoping to be able to watch the Ireland vs England rugby match while in the air and wondering if anyone has any experience of watching live sport on a flight and if it’s possible with airplane WiFi? Any guidance greatly appreciated

    No. The Aer Lingus wifi is really slow and they try to block video sites.

    WiFi might be strong enough to listen to it on Radio stream

    I have heard of some people that have managed it but maybe that’s pot luck with how many people are streaming

    Yes I thought as a worst case scenario that might work but really want to watch it 😳

    I tried to watch the Wales game on a flight to the US and the best I could manage was to listen on the radio. The streaming didnt work for video.

    I watched two 6N games in full on an Aer Lingus flight to Chicago in 2015. It worked fine. Paid €15 or whatever for the WiFi and used an illegal streaming site.
