Connexion Bye-Bye

Friday, October 6th, 2006

Just received a Singapore Airlines newsletter announcing the discontinuation of the in-flight broadband service – Connexion by Boeing, affectionately called CBB. For those in the industry, this may not be news but the following might be welcoming news for those belonging to the Too Frequent Flyer Club (of which thankfully I’m not a member): the service will be free of charge from now until the end of the year when the service will be withdrawn.

I’ve always found it thrilling to be IM’ing and checking emails mid-air, and to imagine the packets travelling all over the skies. I might have the chance to make use of the generous offer when we make the move to Sterling at the end of the year ;-P
