Airplane passengers want reliable, powerful in-flight Wi-Fi pretty badly. So badly, in fact, they’re willing to give up several of what few airline amenities remain.Airplane passengers want reliable, powerful in-flight Wi-Fi pretty badly. So badly, in fact, they’re willing to give up several of what few airline amenities remain. In a survey conducted by Honeywell Aerospace, 80 percent of fliers from the US, England, and Singapore agreed that they’d like to be connected throughout the entire duration of their travel. And not just the slow, unreliable kind sometimes available on flights now. They want to stream, Skype, and Tweet. 9 out of 10 of them are willing to give up something to get it.Reclining seats were a popular choice for the sacrifice. Passengers surveyed were equally willing to jettison seat selection.Peanuts, beverages, and a couple of inches of legroom also made the cut list. Among the most shocking discoveries was that between 13 and 22 percent – results were separated by nationality – said they’d forego bathroom access for a good, steady Wi-Fi signal. Unlikely a coincidence, Honeywell is currently developing a satellite system that will provide airline passengers with streaming-strength Wi-Fi connections over both land and water. What would you give up to get reliable and fast wi-fi on a flight?
