American Airlines is not your airline of choice for porn in the sky

American Airlines is giving way to feedback from its customers and employees. The company announced that they are working with Aircell towards implementing a filter on pornographic content.

In September, American Airlines flight attendants, through the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, asked the carrier to filter its in-flight Internet service to block access to pornography and other web sites that are inappropriate.

The company contends that despite the move, it has not experienced any reported incidents of customers viewing inappropriate content via its Internet service. I don’t believe them. Someone must have tried looking at one. Really. There must be someone. You?

American Airlines was the first airline to launch Internet access to customers flying its Boeing 767-200 aircraft between New York JFK and San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami as part of a three-to-six month trial of inflight connectivity. The introduction of inflight Wi-Fi provides customers the opportunity to be productive and stay connected while in flight and not to satisfy clamor for porn.

So, if you want porn in the sky, American Airlines should not be your airline of choice.
