    So far, an hour over the Pacific from LAX to KOA and the wi-fi is still working. Go Delta.

    Are there internet filters to what sites one can visit on airline Wi-Fi? Also can one download using torrents? What location IP address shows up when you are flying in the air?

    They do restrict things. You cannot stream HBO or Netflix for example. Not sure what main IP shows up. I'll check next week.
