Delta Air Lines to Filter Porn on Flights

Delta Air Lines has been debating over how to deal with the renewed potential for pornography on its flights with upcoming internet access on it's planes (Berman Post: Delta Airlines Will Become the First Major US Airline to Offer Wi-Fi on Their Entire Domestic (Mainline) Fleet) (Berman Post: Porn on The Plane). They had said that they would not try to filter the internet, but have apparently reconsidered. Delta Air Lines is trying to ease peoples fears of a filter that may be both over and under inclusive. One of the greatest draw backs of filters is that they usually do not block everything and block some things that are not pornographic.

Of course, this will not help in situations where people bring magazines or have pornographic materials downloaded on their laptops or in the form of a physical median. As said in the last relevant post, let us just collectively hope that no one tries to push this issue and people will leave what ever pornography desires they have to the privacy of their homes.

"The airline, which plans to launch its in-flight Wi-Fi service later this year, has changed course on the controversial issue and now says it will block inappropriate Web sites from its Internet service, according to an article published Friday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution."
