From tests of a carrier that does WiFi streaming to embedded IFE (not bring your own device), it's about 50 passengers per wireless access point
Implementation for WiFi streaming to embedded devices is much easier, mainly because there are none of the issues brought up by JHwk since the system does not need to support a multitude of devices running different standards.

You see the same problems in convention center meeting halls; serving a large number of users in a confined space wirelessly is difficult.
In our experience, most of the problems convention halls and similar facilities have come from the fact they still see wireless networks as an expense that is forced on them, and therefore invest as little as possible. A couple of years ago, you could take a peek above the ceiling tile at a few of them and find a Netgear AP
sitting next to the 240 volts cable powering the A/C equipment...
That said, it is true that the most costly wireless implementation is a public network covering a large, crowded facility due to the variety of end-user devices.
