Avionics Magazineyesterday hosted an online webinar with some of the top names in the in-flightentertainment and communications (IFEC) industry. I’m still digesting what cameout of the event, but I must say I found Aircell senior vice-president, airlinesolutions Fran Phillips’ slide about all the operational benefits ofin-flight connectivity to be MOST interesting.
No, Frandid not address pay-for-service model of Aircell’s Gogo service (which appearsto be under duress) but she does say there is an economical upside to in-flightconnectivity when airlines exploit its operational benefits. And, she says, thatupside could equate to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. FYI, you can still listen to a recording of yesterday’s webinar.
