Half the LUS fleet has 2KU, and per JonNYC I understand the remaining five aircraft will also get the 2KU early next year.
Does this mean that the aircraft will be staying longer than 2020?
It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to install it early next year and then retire the aircraft at the end of the year.
Most recent fleet plan still has them retiring by end of 2021 but even a year and a half is worth it when you consider that they are doing a lot of 4/5 hour sectors from PHX plus LIH with no Wifi and an inconsistent product for the fleet.
