    Can I blog on my flight to France next week? I’ll everybody posted on my vodka cranberry consumption as well as the wife’s Makers and water tippling.

    So that’s not very high speed by today’s standards, but I guess it’s good for e-mail and maybe a Friday Fun game of Mahjong, or something.

    But just wait until everyone on the plane is using it at once, especially if most of them are using it for video.

    I hope AA did some serious load testing.

    how much?

    I’m betting American “Make Soldiers Pay For Bags/Make Everyone Pay for Sandwiches/We’re Not Getting You There On Time” Airlines probably did NOT do load testing.

    Here’s my prediction: Within 2 years, they’ll start using tiered access, so they can squeeze more and more money out of fliers.
