Wifi in air


Inside an Airbus cabin.

This will certainly change travel in the air:

From Scott McCartney in the Wall Street Journal:
After years of discussion and delay, U.S. airlines will start offering in-flight Internet connections, instant messaging and wireless email within 12 months, turning the cabin into a WiFi "hotspot." Carriers are expected to start making announcements around the end of the summer, with service beginning early next year.
We can get Wifi in the air, but we can't get decent rail service on the ground?
