Wireless Service Returns To Airlines

Following a three year absence, wireless internet service is now returning to air flight service, allowing passenger to surf the web, check their email, and log-on to their corporate network during their flight.  Boeing at one time had a very expensive, multibillion dollar plan to equip planes with a satellite based system, but the idea was shelved.
