Wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) is coming to an aircraft near you. Aircell is testing the video service that will be trialled on American Airlines this summer. Check out the company’s latest pic, taken “in a room full of people” testing the new service, and join in the conversation on FaceBook.
Later today Aircell will publish on its blog a rather thorough Q&A with its president and CEO Michael Small, who talks about everything from the firm’s business model to its technology road map and the future of Ka satellite-based in-flight connectivity. Aircell was kind enough to give me an advance copy of the Q&A. I’ve […]
Some videos get far more hits than others, but what’s YOUR favorite?
To use its own phraseology, Aircell is able to push out Gogo-equipped aircraft “like boxes of popcorn”.

A picture says a thousand words and this little gem above – sitting on the In-flight Entertainment blog – is no exception. It is even sparking some fun discussion among the Twitterati. Responding to the pic, Aviation Week writer and editor and well-known Twitter #avgeek Benet Wilson says: “Nature abhors a vacuum!” Wow, what does that […]
My colleague Megan Kuhn (another MK!) has been churning out some great IFEC copy of late. Her latest article, which describes how Alaska Airlines likely intends to use Aircell’s video download service on the routes that will not have Gogo in-flight Internet, is particularly interesting. A key par from MK’s piece: “…Alaska’s Hawaiian, Mexican and […]
The news for Koito Industries keeps getting worse. Yesterday, EASA told me it isn’t ruling out an airworthiness directive, after the Japanese firm falsified safety data on 150,000 seats in the world fleet. In advance of that, however, Airbus has just released an operators information telex (OIT) on the situation. OPERATORS INFORMATION TELEX – OPERATORS […]
