Having read my recent blog post, ‘SOMEBODY is making money on in-flight connectivity’, research firm Northern Sky Research (NSR) felt compelled to add a little color to its report about the Ku-band sector, and in so doing, dropped a few potential nuggets.

Since we’re all running in similar circles these days, you’ve no doubt seen the report from Travelzoo’s meta-search engine Fly.com which suggests that fewer than 5% of passengers want in-flight mobile and Internet access based on a survey of frequent travellers.
