SkyTeam alliance member Delta Air Lines now offers inflight Internet access on all flights between Sydney and Los Angeles: the airline’s sole Australian route.
Passengers can pre-purchase a Delta Global Day Pass via the Gogo website at a cost of US$28 (A$36.70) for unlimited browsing – both in time and data – or can pay for access once on board with other plans sold at varying rates.
As Delta also codeshares on Virgin Australia’s own Sydney-LA flights, travellers seeking inflight WiFi can easily spot the Delta option when making their booking via the Delta website:

We have since replaced this in our story with a map of Gogo's latest satellite coverage, provided directly by Gogo to Australian Business Traveller, and updated the content of this story accordingly.
