Air-to-Air Broadband


Inflight broadband services is something we’ve liked for years. Why? Satcom love, baby.

Connexion by Boeing was a real winner. In fact, it’s probably still being used by Air Force One and other U.S. agencies — especiallly over the Pacific via GE-23. Ed loved it, as did most users who’ve experienced it.

Alaska Airlines (see above aircraft with satellite antenna housing) and Southwest are using Row 44’s equipment and service. Good decision. published this comparison chart last week:
