We've Always Suspected That Rule Was Silly

American Airlines to Test Inflight Internet

So, the rule against running devices that transmit or receive a radio signal isn't so important after all? Particularly when there's additional revenue to be had from charging for internet access?

As it happens, American is currently my employer's preferred carrier. I expect that if I were traveling on company business, I'd pay for internet access in flight as long as the company were paying for it, and assuming I was able to access one of the in-flight power outlets.
