The WiFi Porn Party Is Over At American Airlines

American Airlines has changed its mind about its liberal anti-porn-filtering policy and will, indeed, attempt to stop that guy in a trench coat from downloading naughty content.

Why did it change its mind? Who knows. Previously, the plan was to let flight attendants be the porn police and instead only block Skype and other internet phone services.

Now the Dallas Morning News says:

American said that it is working with Aircell LLC “to implement technology to filter pornographic content over the Gogo inflight Internet service.”

Delta will also be filtering porn when it launches its own WiFi service.
