Which Airlines Allow Online Porn?

Not All Airlines to Filter Online Content
We've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of in-flight Wi-Fi here in the U.S., and just when it was starting to get to the point where we could finally expect to get our surfing on at 30,000 feet, a whole new controversy springs up that has everyone wanting to shut the tech off again. The issue is people surfing questionable (a.k.a. porn) content while flying the friendly skies, and different airlines are reacting in different ways.

Right now it breaks down like this: Southwest, American, and Delta will all be relying on content filters to restrict what travelers can access. Meanwhile, Virgin, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, and US Air will all let surfers go wherever they like -- though some will be asking stewards and stewardesses to keep their eyes open. Who is in the right? We're inclined to say people are making a bigger deal out of this than it really is. There are far more important things to worry about, like prohibitive fees for checked baggage! [From: MSNBC]
