The sluggish roll-out of Gogo’s 2Ku inflight wifi connectivity on British Airways maybe picking up speed. The first 777-300ER is now confirmed with the kit installed and active.
Air New Zealand is finally sporting an inflight connectivity radome on one of its aircraft. Ship ZK-OKS, a 777-300ER, returned to service last week after a month in Singapore where the Inmarsat Global Xpress (“GX”) kit was installed. The carrier announced last December that it will fit its entire fleet with the GX service.
Singapore Airlines 777 fleet is finally receiving some of the promised new inflight wifi systems. The first to carry Inmarsat’s GX hardware was spotted this week in Los Angeles after completing its retrofit a couple weeks ago.
Might United Airlines be announcing an order for 10 new Boeing 777-300ERs in the near future? Seems quite likely. And it makes a lot of sense in many ways, assuming it can get dispatch reliability back up where it should be.
