First place in the ranking goes to Qatar Airways, chiefly for its Super Wi-fi service that launched earlier this year. It gives passengers speeds of up to 50Mbps. It costs US$10 for unlimited usage per flight, though all passengers get an hour for free.
Emirates grabbed second place in the ranking. It gives each passenger 20MB of free Wi-fi, which must be used within two hours

Which are the world’s most tech-friendly long-haul airlines? You may be surprised
To save you the effort of clicking the first 2 are Next are Delta, BA and Jet Blue
Delta Airline is using GoGo’s 2Ku satellite-based system to offer internet speeds of around 100Mbp/s per plane. Theoretically, over 30 people could be watching Netflix at the same time, and nobody would experience any slowdowns.
American Airline airplanes still use the outdated ATG-4 technology, which delivers only 9.8Mbp/s per plane.

How old is this report? I have not experienced that wifi with Qatar and have taken about 8 flights with them in the last 2 years. Usually its 10mb free and then pay through the nose for it after.
Emirates used to charge $1 for their wifi but then upped the rate a lot.
