Boeing Puts The Kabosh On In Air Wireless Service

787_topshot_375While there may be good news at the moment about lithium-ion batteries in air travel, flying WiFi took a hit with news that Boeing is cancelling its Connexion Service that was all the rage when it was first released.

“Over the last six years, we have invested substantial time, resources and technology in Connexion by Boeing,” said Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney. “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’m curious if any of our readers have used this service. Please comment if so.
