I think a hotspot-like monthly pass option for flights of any  
duration would receive strong uptake, were the service ubiquitous,  
which will require near-universal availability of power in economy- 
class cabins, IMHO.

Understand, this is all just my personal opinion; I would -love- for  
this service to be economically viable so that I could use it.  I  
just believe that there are certain preconditions which must be met  
for it to succeed.

Any information security mechanism, process, or procedure which can
be consistently defeated by the successful application of a single
class of attacks must be considered fatally flawed.
