Re: Pretty cool
I actually have the Bose QC25's which are excellent. But they drown out jet noise, not obnoxious and smelly passengers... Maybe Bose makes special nose plugs as well?

Re: Pretty cool
I'd recommend some good earplugs or a nice set of Bose noise-cancellation headphones. Well worth the cost.

Now if there was only a way to enforce the silence! I've been on red eyes from the west coast to the east coast and it was like a party. Sometimes you can't win. I think the only truly quiet places on a commercial flight are in first class on a large plane and upstairs on a 747.

Re: Pretty cool
That is so true. There was a recent incident where Governor Christie was screaming into his cell phone in an Amtrak Quiet Car! Even in a non quiet car that is rude. But unfortunately it happens everywhere, even when you pay extra for the quiet.

Re: Pretty cool
Well I did not say i was using those services on a plane. However you do need the bandwidth in hotels to use those services there.

Re: Pretty cool
kstaron, I don't know how the airlines can regulate anything beyond noise level of what people do on wi-fi. I have  been on the train with people creating personal hotspots and caught and heard glimpses of things that had no business being in public. It really comes down to people knowing how to behave in public, and there will always be people who simply don't know how to.

Re: Pretty cool
I like the idea of free wifi on planes, but of course there's the fact I may not have control over what the person next to/ in front of me is doing with that wifi. Will I hear snippets of someone's skype conversation? Or worse snippets of somebody's 'adult' movie? Haven't flown where there's readily available wifi recently. Do the airlines rely on people to behave or do they have some basic, 'you're in public people' kind of rules?

Re: Pretty cool
To be honest, I bet you in-flight dating is already happening. Certain dating apps only connect you with people within close proximity. Any flight attendants in the house? There must be some crazy stories of complete strangers on a long flight breaking cabin rules.

Re: Pretty cool
I'm very thankful for my noise-canceling headphones. In-flight dating sound a little creepy. Let's hope that never comes about.

Re: Pretty cool
Webex and Facetime type apps should be like cellphone usage on planes --- technically possible but forbidden. Too much already exists to agitate people before, during and after flights. What else can people do with this free wi-fi to drive others insane? How about in-flight dating services?
