Boeing delays the web on planes.
They are not doing well at Boeing, the first (albeit followed by Airbus) manufacturer of commercial aircraft in the world. Between 20,000 and 30,000 are the employees who will soon have to look for another job, it seems that 200 will remain at the home of the over 600 that, in the plans prior to 11 September, had to deal with the Connexion adventure, or the system that Boeing had decided to adopt in its commercial fleet to connect, at high speed, all travelers to the web from over 11,000 meters high. And if commercial aviation is hit hard, military aviation sees a boom in production on the horizon and Boeing have moved the Connexion unit (offices between Kent and Irvine, California) from the commercial to the military sector, immediately For its part, the competition from Tenzing (which will provide more or less the same service to Airbus planes), does not seem worried and does not announce any change of plans even if it must record the withdrawal of one of the its nine client airlines. We will have to wait a few more years to access the Internet from the cabin of the airliners.
