The demise of the service has been long in the making. In the last few year overall usage and benefit of the service has gone down as cell phone availability and usage has increased dramatically on the ground, while inflight usage has remained flat if not declined at some carriers.
As a result the airline revenue share has also seen a steady decline while most recently several carriers have started to reduce/remove Airfone equipment on aircraft as a weight saving exercise due to fuel cost.
