The In-Flight Wireless Wrangle

Noise-reducing headphone sales will surely skyrocket if AirCell and JetBlue Airways have their way. Their recently won chunk of air-to-ground communications radio airwaves is earmarked for in-flight Wi-Fi Internet access with possible cell phone usage not far behind. The deal isn’t final, however, and obstacles, such as the FCC, RTCA, FAA, and Verizon (current owner of the spectrum, until 2010) may stand in their way. Not to mention passengers and flight attendants who may rally for their peace and quiet.
