In an arcile in the New York times, entitled "Boeing to End Its Service for Using Internet Aloft ", the demise of the Connextion service is spelt out. I'm not sure whether th laugh or cry.
I travel a fair bit, around Europe and to the US. With my new job, I'll be on planes most weeks. Being able to connect to the office to pick up mail, etc is ueful, especially on longer flights. At the same time, I'm not so sure I want to sit next to someone Skyping for 8 hours.
