Good Bye to Internet Service on Boeing

Were you going to check emails at 35000 feet? Well, it doesn't look like that you will be able to since Boeing is shutting down its service that was going to offer internet service on its planes. It is also a complex process to install internet service and will be expensive. Airlines are more concerned about the high cost of oil rather than the internet service.

However, LiveTV LLC and AirCell Inc are developing such service but at low price. There are however few Asian and European airlines that have signed up for such service. Lufthansa offers free internet service for its business class during long flights.

Verizon is also discontinuing its phone service soon.

I think its fine to drop such services specially of the recent threatening incidences.
