Airborne Sky Network. Will This Work?

Airborne Wireless Networks propose to use commercial aircraft as “mini-satellites” to form mesh networks in the sky to provide worldwide connectivity. Details HERE.

A view of aircraft in the sky over a 24 hour period HERE.  Another view of aircraft HERE.

Note the lack of aircraft over Russia, interior Africa, and South America. My guess is this would work best in the US and Europe.  And, it will require the cooperation of multiple airlines.  Will we see this solution to rural connectivity?
