Boeing Connexion Service Fails To Take Off

It appears airline passengers aren’t as eager for in-flight Wi-Fi as proponents thought they would be. Boeing, creator of Connexion in-flight Wi-Fi service, has put a hold on future expansion of the service and may even sell or terminate the program. Connexion currently offers wireless service onboard 72 extended-flight planes, but the fee of up to $29.95 (depending on flight time) has kept some passengers unconnected. In a similar move, US telecoms provider Verizon ended its 20-year Airfone service on commercial flights.
