Delta will filter in-flight Wi-Fi

According to this report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Delta Airlines will block some Web sites when the airline launches in-flight Wi-Fi later this year.

I wrote a Well-Mannered Traveler column on this topic last week and, at that time, no one from Delta had the time (or the inclination?) to answer my inquiry on the filter-or-not topic.

Now, the AJC is reporting that, while the airline had originally planned to ask flight attendants to monitor inapprpriate in-flight surfing, it will now ask the Wi-Fi provider, Aircell, to block inappropriate content.

American Airlines is also considering filtering in-flight Wi-Fi.
