    17 planes outfitted already (A330 fleet)
    Available in all classes.
    Any wi-fi enabled device will work.
    You can Skype too. :(
    Pricing: $15 per hour or 3.5k MM miles
    $29 or 7k MM miles for 24 hours :eek:
    No mention of A380s in article but one would think....

    Thanks VVanderlust. Any idea on coverage areas? Latin America? SE Asia?

    Anywhere the intercontinental fleet flies. It is satellite based.

    Hi Wanderlust- thanks for the quick answer. The previous satellite system of Boeing/LH did not reach the southern hemisphere due to the satelletie positioning. I am curious with the new system- where the satellites are and which coverage areas they have? Anywhere the intercontinental fleet flies, while it would be very impressive, would be extremely costly (I am not sure even the US MIlitary has this capability!).

    This is huge - I hope airlines will at some point realise that people want to bring their own IFE anyways and get rid of those heavy screens/boxes.
