    This is unconscionably expensive. How long has Thai had this system? Deploying an L-band satellite system seems to be 5+ years too late.

    That is absurd. It’s really the ‘911’ inflight broadband system… too expensive except for _absolutely must connect_ situations. Of course providing satellite internet to flying metal tubes is always going to have an expensive set of input costs, but they should know from the Boeing Connexion failure that pricing access this highly is never going to give them the volume revenue flow they need.

    My last SQ flight charged by time, not MB. It was cheaper than buying 24 hours of GoGo in-flight.
