Re: Only Marginal Profits
They don't actually own DirecTV yet. My bet is that they were looking at how long it would take to get this inflight service operational and decided that they had missed their window.

I wonder what exactly is the technology they hoped to use to connect to the plane.   Now that AT&T owns DirecTV, at least for download, couldn't they use that satellite network for delivering the heavy use for most plane travellers -- watching streaming video.

Only Marginal Profits
When looking at where AT&T can invest capital, dropping in-flight wireless is likely a wise decision. Some other providers have already built market share, so the cost to develop and compete in this market was probably too high to make sense for AT&T.
