JetBlue will start a pilot program (no pun intended) to enable limited internet access on one of their planes next week. Though the offering is on one plane and limited to 2 Blackberry devices, it is a move in the right direction.
My life would be so much easier if I could do email on the plane and I would be so much more productive too.
I just hope that they don't allow cell phone voice communications. While the idea that your cellular signal could interfere with the plane's operation is ridiculous (truly), I like the fact that I don't have to listen to 200 people trying to talk over the hum of the engines at 30,000 feet. I think I would shoot myself!!!
