Catch 22
Besides tunneling to a VDI, or corporate data...which requires an Internet connection, other options include:

1.  thumbdrive...however there are many corporations disabling this option

2.  Removable encrypted hard drive, which still may require a USB connection (I don't know of any maker that allows removing the hard drive in a laptop anymore)

Both these option allow the passenger to carry their data with them, while checking in their laptop. 

Does this policy include checking tablets?  A person might still be able to VPN to a VDI using tablets nowadays.

Security
I'm with George Wrenn on this.  It'll force companies to do what they already should be doing.

At the same time, however, while I appreciate the security risks of people hacking into on board systems, I am not convinced this is the best way to solve the problem (especially because what can be done on a laptop can be done on a jailbroken mobile device).  I'd rather see better InfoSec in this environment, even to the point of lack of connectivity.  If the cost is no Wi-Fi for the two to four hours it takes to get to Atlanta, that to me is better than "you can't bring your laptop/device."
