ABSTRACT
This article assesses the implications of the dispute between Continental Airlines Inc. and the Massachusetts Port Authority over a Wi-Fi antenna. Continental Airlines has asked the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to rule whether the Massachusetts Port Authority can force the airline to remove a Wi-Fi antenna at its President's Club frequent-flyer lounge at Boston-Logan International Airport. Continental argues Massachusetts Port's lease provisions prohibiting the airline from offering free Wi-Fi service to travelers and employees violate the Internet policy of the agency. The port authority also claims Continental's Wi-Fi antenna interferes with the central Wi-Fi antenna at Logan and could undermine airport safety.
