It's nice to see in-flight wi-fi becoming a reality. The rates may seem steep but if it allows you to do a couple of hours of useful work online during a flight, that's a pretty good productivity deal in my opinion. I also read that the FAA is planning to allow in-flight cell-phone usage too at some point. Both of these will help reduce the amount of 'dead time' that business travelers have to face when they're flying - one of the reasons that, today, I try to fly overnight so I can combine flying with sleeping and not miss any valuable work time.
