Boeing's in-flight communications amenities unit Connexion (who we well know and love for their WiFi service offered up on a number of different international carriers) plans to offer up in-flight cellphone service next year. Ok, slow down there—we know this is going to annoy as many people as it'll excite (and we all know how contested the FAA in-flight phone ban has actually been thus far), but just because they're going to be able to offer the service doesn't mean that flight regulations will be remolded to accommodate it. Yet. But come on, we all know it's safe—the FAA is going to buckle eventually, so why not sooner than later?
