Seems to go contrary to the fact that over a thousand airliners have it installed. If they went through the effort to get it up and running, somebody must be using it.

I note that Asian arlines have it installed. Seems to indicate that Asian businessmen may be the driving force behind it - or 1st-class passengers in the Northern hemisphere.

Obviously we're not going to see usage in coach. Not until WiFi comes free with the plane ticket, that is, and I won't be holding my breath for that.
