Say it ain't so! The 787 sheds wireless media and what seems like Wi-Fi capability in favor of wired connections at each seat. The reconfiguration saves a net weight of 150 pounds, equaling one below-average American sans baggage or one Parisian avec baggage. It's not clear how many wireless systems were involved here, but Boeing already built a standard cabling and conduit system that allows them to tack on per-seat wired connections with a fairly small incremental effort. The wiring will weigh about 50 pounds; the wireless gear toted up to 200 pounds. Boeing says frequency coordination worldwide was the culprit, however.
