    It turns off all the radios (WiFi, Bluetooth, cellular) so you're compliant with federal and airline regulation.

    As LtKen says, it also allows you to turn off those things and still connect to the internet via WiFi.

    I have been using it to allow me to fly a plane. Wow, guess I was wrong. You can turn WIFI on while in airplane mode to connect up.

    It doesn't turn off wifi. It turns off cellular and bluetooth.

    Airplane mode does turn off wifi, however you can then turn wifi back on individually if you wish.

    Wifi is also required to be off on planes
