Hawaiian Airlines will be the first major air carrier to offer Starlink internet

Submitted
Your next flight to Hawaii might come with speedy in-flight internet access. CNBC reports Hawaiian Airlines has signed a deal to offer SpaceX's Starlink service aboard all its Transpacific flights. Fly aboard an Airbus A321neo, Airbus 330 or Boeing 787-9 and you'll have free, relatively low-latency WiFi that should be quick enough to stream media and play online games. Hawaiian will start deploying Starlink broadband with "select" aircraft in 2023. There aren't any plans… (www.engadget.com) More...

Agreed. I've been on the waiting list for 9 months and the last notification I received is Starlink "MAY" be available in my area by the end of 2023.

A better use for Star Link would be for transmission of ADS-B information to the respective tracking facilities via the ground system while flying across the oceans. This would alleviate the Radar Altimeter problems as ADS-B has GPS data from the aircraft, and radar altimeter data would then be a backup system for the aircraft when in transitioning from en-route to airport tracking and guidance. This is a simplistic explanation.

Why is there always the "low latency" hype that only matters to multi-player gamers. What are the guaranteed data rates and availability metrics? Seems Starlink never publish those numbers.

I cancelled Stàrlink làst month after waiting almost 2 (?) Years for my kit. A local cable company upgraded their system ànd reached out to me to offer 200 Gbyte service for $70 a month. No reason to hold out for Starlink, now!
