    • Honeywell's (HON -1.1%) BendixKing division has announced its affordable Internet system data plan aimed at general aviation aircraft.
    • The new data plan transforms the status quo of data consumption allowing owners and operators to purchase data based upon how many hours they use vs. how much data they consume. Operators will be able to purchase 50 hours of internet connectivity for $1,999.
    • "With the data plan for AeroWave 100, we eliminated the ridiculously expensive price barrier for obtaining in-flight connectivity for the light jet and turboprop market," says BendixKing President Kevin Gould. "Delivering real, usable Internet connectivity for under $40 per hour completely changes the market."

    • Honeywell (HON +1.1%) and DuPont (DD +1.9%) reportedly face a European Union complaint for violating antitrust rules over the only car coolant chemical that currently meets new EU standards on greenhouse gas emissions.
    • It’s a new twist in a long-running saga over the HFO-1234yf chemical, which is expected to be a cash cow for the two companies, as it replaces ozone-depleting alternatives that can’t be included in new vehicles sold in the EU starting in 2017.
    • The new chemical is considered more expensive than its predecessor, and "with patent-protected supply plus a more expensive manufacturing process, a price premium will exist for some time,” an analyst says.
