A Resort Fit for Royalty

The wedding of Prince William and Kate last month drew more viewers than any other wedding in history. Of course the public was also very curious about the royal honeymoon. It recently came out that the newlyweds spent two weeks in the island paradise of the Seychelles, a beautiful island country made up of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, some 932 miles east of mainland Africa.

William and Kate stayed at the breathtaking North Island Resort while there, a luxurious lodge located on a secluded island, dotted with pristine white sand beaches and surrounded by clear turquoise waters.

The North Island has just 11 villas total, each approximately 4,890 square feet in size, offering ample privacy and space to relax and rejuvenate. Each villa has been individually hand crafted, and each features 2 bedrooms, a changing room, a large bathroom with marble bathtub, and indoor and outdoor shower, and fully retracting sliding doors which open to a view of the sea.

The amenities feature satellite TV, DVD/CD systems, internet access, kitchen, lounge, a huge private patio and private plunge pool. Each villa also has its own Island Buggy, to explore the island at leisure.

The resort also has a spa/wellness center, air-conditioned gym and swimming pool, and exceptional world class dining. Optional island activities include; diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, fly fishing, private boat tours and more!

American First Airline to Test Streaming In-Flight Entertainment

American Airlines is the first US airline to test streaming in flight entertainment. Aircell's new product will allow customers to wirelessly stream content such as movies and TV shows from an in-flight library to their personal Wi-Fi enabled devices during flight.

American is starting the new in-flight video testing early this summer on two Boeing 767-200 aircraft used in transcontinental flights. Pending FAA certifications, the airline's goal is to roll out this product on Wi-Fi-enabled aircraft starting this fall. American is working with Aircell to enhance onboard connectivity by expanding in flight Wi-Fi to its narrow body fleet, including additional MD-80's and domestic Boeing 757-200 aircraft, so all of its domestic aircraft will offer the service within the continental United States.

Installation will begin this summer and continue through 2012. In addition, American continues to install Wi-Fi service on its entire fleet of 737-800 aircraft. Aircell uses an air-to-ground system with three small antennas installed outside the aircraft that connect to Aircell's exclusive nationwide mobile broadband network. Pricing will be announced closer to the launch date and after the testing period.
