EAT YOUR HEART OUT, GLENN FLEISHMAN: Reader Geoff Osler emails:

Thought you’d appreciate this: I’m on an SAS flight from Copenhagen to Seattle right now, just crossing over Reykjavik. I’m sending this to you via in-flight wi-fi (Connexion by Boeing).

The flight crew are all proud they’ve beat Lufthansa to the punch: they tell me this is the first-ever commercial flight with in-flight wi-fi!

Also, as I was the first to log in on this flight, that makes this the first-ever email sent from a regularly-scheduled commercial flight.

Cool. Though I actually thought that Lufthansa was already doing this on some flights.
