Podcast: Analyst forecasts big money from in-flight Internet

IAG’s Addison Schonland recently chatted with In-Stat analyst Daryl Schoolar about his new report on the in-flight connectivity market.

Schoolar’s numbers are quite compelling – by 2013 the business could be generating $2.2bn/year with 6,250 planes Wi-Fi enabled. That is awesome growth from an estimated $49m in 2009 and $272m in 2010, notes Schonland.

Schoolar also gives his two cents about Row 44 – is the firm having installation challenges? – and the T-Mobile/ViaSat solution that Lufthansa hopes to adopt.
