Do you find it frustrating that you’re often not able to get online when you’re in a flight? If everything goes according to plan, you might be choosing Cathay Pacific for your future flights, as the company has announced that it has penned a deal with Panasonic Avionics to provide 50Mbps broadband connectivity for all Cathay Pacific and Dragonair passenger aircraft by early 2012. Aside from the all-important broadband, in-flight GSM cell phone services that support voice, SMS, and data will also be offered, along with live and pay-per-view TV programs. The full details haven’t been finalized yet, but we are looking forward to seeing broadband becoming commonplace in airlines.
