The WiFi In The Sky Announcement That Isn't

from the not-much-substance-here... dept

Lots of folks seem to be picking up on this Reuters report claiming that iPass and Boeing will soon let you WiFi from the friendly skies. This is something of a non-announcement, really. First, it really only applies to iPass customers, who use their roaming solution. While plenty of companies do work with iPass, it's not directed at individual users. Second, and much more importantly, this only works on the very, very few flights on which Boeing is offering their Connexion service -- which right now is basically a couple of Lufthansa routes.
