Please, Panasonic, succeed!
I was gutted when I heard the news that Beoing were pulling out of the in-flight wireless game...but...it looks like Panasonic might pick up where Connexion left off.
"Panasonic wants commitments within 60 days from airlines for 500 planes to be equipped; they say they have 150 committed now. Lufthansa has over 60 planes with Connexion and SAS with about 20; I suspect both airlines have signed on. They’ll still use Ku band leased transponders, but with much more efficient equipment that will allow 12 Mbps/3 Mbps versus Boeing’s 5 Mbps/1 Mbps rate"
BA? Where art thou in all this...?
Please, Panasonic, succeed. You must succeed!!!!
