Have you been struggling to find time to check “Get hooked on TikTok” off the to-do list? American Airlines has a brand-new partnership promo just for you!

As of 2 August, you can use AA’s inflight ViaSat connectivity to watch 30 minutes of dance, fitness, skincare and home-improvement videos on TikTok — and, of course, endless content from the social wizards at TPG — completely free of charge.

You’ll almost forget that your plane doesn’t have a seat-back screen loaded with hours of on-demand movies and TV shows.

The new TikTok offering joins a suite of other AA freebies, including Apple TV+ streaming content, Apple Music access, language guides from Rosetta Stone and more.

Of course, you can also get access to the World Wide Web — the larger “internet” you and I love — after purchasing a flight pass or subscription. You just won’t have to do that the next time you want to spend the duration of your American flight browsing TikTok.
