No porn allowed – not in the clouds, say American Airline flight attendants.

Just weeks after American Airline started offering in-flight wireless internet, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants is urging the airline to add filters restricting passengers from browsing porn and other inappropriate sites, according to a Bloomberg story. Many passengers and attendants have reportedly complained about the issue.

“It’s a tricky door to open,” said Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy and Information Center in Washington, in the Bloomberg story. “Where do you draw the line once you start policing the information your customers can access?”

I’m going to have to side with the flight attendants on this one. It’s uncomfortable enough sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with complete strangers in those cramped seats. Sitting next to a stranger watching porn brings “awkward” to a whole new level.
