You can get XM Radio in G-1000 and Avedyne Entegra equipped aircraft if that's what you're looking for.

If you want to include the fact American Airlines is going to be installing WiFi and/or cell phone enhancement systems in some of their aircraft.

I think the OP was referring to something else - in particular, using some form of wireless infrastructure to stream video / audio content to each seat, not specificially wireless Internet access or wireless radio.

There are some systems being developed for the 787 - Thales was the first manufacturer to offer one: http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2005/q3/nr_050930g.html

Panasonic also have a wireless IFE system available.

I hope their IFE is more robust and reliable than their PIN@POS equipment. Even Dione have them beat into a cocked hat in that arena.

Actually all the aircraft manufacturers are entertaining proposals from the avionics manufactureres for "new" systems.
Collins is working with Bombardier, Boeing, Dassault, and Gulfstream on a number of systems wired and wireless.
Honeywell is working with the same people with their ideas of how their systems should work and be introduced. We'll see what happens.
The single biggest problem I see is that there aren't really any new ideas being implemented. The newest Bombardier/Boeing/Gulfsstream/Dassault system isn't much more than a digital MUX and no easier to maintain.
The engineers designing the stuff are all too young to base any of their ideas on experience so they bring what they learned in school with them and think it's original. All the old heads are retiring so there's very little mentoring going on out here.
The more things change the more they stay the same. . .

Isn't Air Canada introducing a wireless IFE system, TopSeries 4000 or something, on their E190s?

Come, fly the prevailing winds with me
