Surfing on the Internet in an airplane

Is it possible to surf on the Internet during a flight? I know that it must be possible for airlines to offer such a service because the technique is ready for action but I found nothing here about Internet in an airplane. Have heard something about this?

I believe they offer this so-called "Airlines In-flight Wi-Fi access" when your in flight. I suggest you call your airline first to know more about it.

Some airlines do provide internet access but it is a rare service. Some planes have ethernet ports where you plug your cable and the signal is then routed out of the plane through an external antenna as wireless signals can interfere with the plane's communication systems. It's best to contact the airline company and ask them directly.

Also who the heck would need internet on an airplane Unless you're a day trader and want to monitor your stock portfolio during a 20 hour flight ...
