A new inflight Internet service is being tested that could mean the end of passengers clunky connection speeds where web pages often don't load and anything like a Youtube clip would be better viewed in the terminal.
Honeywell Aerospace, Inmarsat and Kymeta are trialling a new inflight Internet service that could bring connection speeds of up to 50 megabytes per second at 37,000 feet.
A number of airlines around the world currently offer in-flight Internet services including Virgin America, Norwegian and Qatar Airways, but speeds are more reminiscent of dial-up then high-speed.
GoGo is currently the largest provider of in-flight Wi-Fi available on more than 2,000 planes. OnAir is another satellite based Internet provider which is found on many Gulf carriers.
