Boeing, Global Eagle Entertainment join to offer aircraft satellite connectivity

Boeing (BA -0.1%) and Global Eagle Entertainment (ENT +10.9%) signed a new technical services agreement to assess the latter's satellite-based connectivity solution for airlines worldwide.

Global Eagle currently connects over 550 planes over four continents with its Ku-band satellite-connected system.

Since the system can be pre-installed on new Boeing 737s and 787s, the agreement can have a profound impact on future sales.

The evaluation is expected to be completed next year.

    Thomas, your comment has no relevance whatsoever to the posted article. The article is about commercial airline passenger in-flight conductivity. It has nothing to do with the Sea Launch consortium bankruptcy in 2009, or any investigation therein....
