Interesting that they claim a correlation between coffee shop and in-flight services. Our firm is also publishing a study on this topic, and we've found that it would be cost prohibitive to replicate a coffee shop or hotel service due to the expense of leasing satellite transponders.

Another issue we're finding is downtime for system installs will slow everyone down due to lost revenue. It's not a deal breaker, but it's something that's making airlines re-consider how long it would take to equip the fleet, particularly those that have few PTVs.

Looks like they just covered airliners, but the bizjet market is actually growing more quickly now.
