We're nearing the end of summer and there has been nary a test of Row 44's satellite-based connectivity system onboard Southwest Airlines' aircraft, as previously expected. What's going on?
"It's a new process for us so there are approvals that we're going through and the technology is new for Southwest as well," says a Southwest spokeswoman.
Pricing has also not yet been determined but it will be "in line with our low-fare model", she adds.
Southwest isn't working with any other connectivity providers at this point. "We are concentrating on Row 44 and this stage is the proof-of-concept. We're working with them and only them right now."
