If you do not understand what I am talking about here is the heads up. You are stuck on a plane for hours at a time. So you are bored so what is there to do? Most airlines will be playing a movie that is hard to see and is normal a movie that is five to ten years old. The reason for that is it is cheaper for them. To show a movie in an on a large-scale you must have the copyrights to that movie. Anyway that is the old way to waste some time on an airplane. Thankfully we airlines are starting to get faster internet on plane.
The biggest challenge is that gap of 35,000 feet to the ground. There is no way that you can run a cable to your plane to you have to get the internet from space or on the ground. There are satellites that send you information from the ground and space. So you can update you Facebook, buy something online, check your bank account, and anything else that you can do on the internet. They are also offering you tables on the play that you can play games on, read a book , or watch a movie. So whatever you want to do on your long plane ride you will be at home in the air because of advancing technology.
