This is what you might hear the next time you find yourself on that twelve hour flight. According to Forbes Magazine , Beoing has introduced in flight Wifi to select flights traveling from Germany to LA. This is a great idea that is sorely past it's time. What a better place to sell an internet connection than to a bunch of people who can't move for six to sixteen hours.

"Airlines, which pay probably 500,000 [Dollars] a plane to get Wi-Fi, won't do this if only 2% of people will pay. Our research shows something like 38% of frequent travelers will pay for this." For its part, Boeing anticipates running a profitable business on an uptake rate of 6% of total travelers.
So, would you like "Coffee, Tea Or Broadband"
