Wireless networks have certainly brought a lot of convenience to our lives, allowing us to work and surf from almost anywhere. But unfortunately, wireless connectivity has also brought convenience to hackers, giving them the opportunity to capture all data we type into our connected computers and devices through the air.
Just because an airline says that it offers Wi-Fi does not mean that it will actually be available on your flight. While most major U.S. airlines have adopted some kind of wireless strategy, not all aircrafts have been Wi-Fi enabled. In fact only Virgin America, Alaska Airlines and Delta have deeply embraced the technology across most (if not all) of their fleets.
