Travelers Set Tech Agenda For Airports And Airlines – Infographic

Complaints about limited, expensive and choppy Wi-Fi are widespread among frequent flyers, but what about other mobile and tech services on planes and at airports?

FlightView, the company behind mobile apps that track real-time flight information, polled 2,600 travelers on what they want on-the-go while in-the-air.

Unsurprisingly, the survey revealed that 69% were unsatisfied with in-flight Wi-Fi, while 58% felt that wireless was sub-par at airports.
