American Airlines Porn

American Airlines recently introduced inflight internet service on select routes. The airline today published a press release entitled American Airlines to Filter Pornographic Content on the Gogo Inflight Internet System. Surely they wouldn’t take the time to issue a whole press release if it weren’t a problem. But here is the press release, ver batum from PR Newswire.

Based on the feedback of our customers and employees, American Airlines is working with Aircell to implement technology to filter pornographic content over the Gogo inflight Internet service.

Since the launch of Gogo, American has not experienced any reported incidents of customers viewing inappropriate content via the Gogo service. However, we believe this is an appropriate measure to take.

More details will be forthcoming as the company finalizes its plans.

So, until the filter is put in to place it sounds like an invitation to watch as much porn as possible on your flights. I’m just surprised the airline would put this sort of information out there to give sickos the idea they can, in fact, watch porn inflight. I’m sure 99% of people assumed such measures were already in place. If you’re traveling with your children on one of these flights, be sure to keep an eyeball peeled for what the person in the next row is watching online. Unless you want to answer some tough questions.

The GoGo service is currently available on American’s 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.
