 File under "mixed blessing", imho...

Giving business travelers the onboard connectivity they have long sought, Australian airline Qantas says it will begin offering wireless e-mail and Internet access on its new fleet of Airbus A380 jets, which will go into service August 2008.

The connections for mobile handsets and laptop computers will be offered as part of a comprehensive "next generation in-flight entertainment system" that includes digital-quality big-screen monitors in all cabins, audio and video on demand with 100 movies, 500 audio CDs, audio books, and computer games, plus an external camera that will offer a pilot's eye view of flights.
