Boeing’s latest planes, the 787 Dreamliner offers a post-delivery retrofit of systems that provide in-flight use of personal cell phones and wi-fi connectivity for passengers and is working toward a full set of connectivity offerings as part of its standard catalog by the end of this year. Wireless media streaming is expected to be available on all new Boeing airplanes in 2014.
