No in-flight WiFi for British Airways

British Airways

We were really hoping that a New York-London flight was going to get the next WiFi in the sky since we don't seem to be jetting off to Munich too often, but the CIO of British Airways says that they're going to wait and see how Lufthansa's experiment with putting WiFi into their jets works out before make a commitment. He says the current technology is still too immature and costly and complains that Boeing and Airbus need to build the WiFi platform with the initial construction since grounding planes for a 10-day WiFi installation is way too costly for airline companies already competing in a cut-throat industry. Fine, destroy our wistful dreams of blogging from 40,000 feet—you want some cheese with that whine?
