It seems another airline has gone to the data used instead of a timed access.

This is a major step backwards. Is this an attempt to get more revenue from the service, or is it costing the airline too much (ie people are using too much data?). If the latter, then could it block streaming data hungry services? OR they have a MB service from which you can stream, and a time based service from which you can only email and web browse?

I suspect it's as a result of people consuming more and more data (which costs the airlines more) and uses up the available bandwidth making the service quality suffer.
