    I thought the Airline staff say not to use WiFi mechanisms, as it can interfere with the planes equipment.

    I have tried searching though

    I work for SWA in ops and we are testing two a/c with wifi capabilities. So far, passengers love it. I haven't been on it yet but it has come through a couple of times.
