Avionics International: Will LEO Change the Paradigm of IFC Service ?

Grady of NSR said that LEO models may give way to third party partnerships, in which a company like Fortnite, Minecraft, or a real-time chat application, partners with an airline to pay for the LEO service to promote their offering. Overall, Grady said that airlines will have to weigh their needs when it comes to route map, fleet structure, cost profile, and customer base, when deciding between a LEO or GEO service. He doesn’t believe that LEO will change the paradigm overnight, pointing to the inertia behind current GEO operators.
