Qantas Denies Porn Caused Cancellation of In-Flight Internet

I’ve seen a bunch of articles this morning suggesting that Qantas has canceled its plans to offer Internet access on the A380 due to fears that passengers will spend the whole flight surfing porn (American Airlines flight attendants are asking the airline to put filtering software on their Internet service.  For its part, the airline says passengers have been bringing porn on planes for years and there are ways of dealing with it.  I’m not sure what that means.)  In any case, Qantas is now saying that porn had nothing to do with the decision and that there were simply technical issues.  Technical issues downloading porn, perhaps.

  1. Several years ago, I sat next to a guy on a flight to London who was reading Playboy (presumably for the articles :)). The flight attendants didn’t say anything.

    Logic would suggest that an airplane is not an appropriate venue to get your porn fix (mags or on-line). But history always tells us that there will be members of our society that will not respect these cultural norms. I’d put a porn filter on the browser if I was running the airline.

  2. You can never deny the porn.
