Video: Travel Hackers in Finland and Gogo 2Ku in Flight

The latest episode of PaxExTV is online and, once again, I’m hosting one of the segments. This time around much of the footage was recorded while in flight on Gogo‘s 737-500 “Jimmy Ray” which is being used to test the 2Ku service which Gogo hopes to have operating commercially imminently (AeroMexico has the hardware installed and certified; Virgin Atlantic awaits certification on its first install).

As part of the 2Ku rollout I speak with Gogo’s Andrew Kemmetmuller about the opportunities for in-flight connectivity to extend to operations rather than only focusing on the passengers. And, if you watch the outakes reel, you’ll also see me mess up his name a few times. Whoopsie.

We’ve also got Peter Shankman on board talking about his impressions of the system performance. Lots of fun, and some useful information in there, too.
