Boeing Drops Wireless In-Flight Internet Service

That is really upsetting. I liked the service and used it on every flight to/from Germany when it was available. It was actually a reason for me to prefer Lufthansa (which offered the service) over United. I thought the price was not outrageous (I think $29.99 for unlimited usage on a flight). CrunchGear reports…

Company chief Jim McNerney said, “Regrettably, the market for this service has not materialized as had been expected. We believe this decision best balances the long-term interests of all parties with a stake in Connexion by Boeing.”

I hope since the equipment is now installed on the planes that Lufthansa and other airlines can find an alternative service provider for the satellite Internet service.

BTW, I am sitting at the SFO ariport waiting for my flight to Munich… maybe one of the last flights with Broadband Internet…
