Your chart is inaccurate. You have omitted several connectivity deals that are coming, and attributed many of Panasonic's wins to Aeromobile, which is the service provider for Panasonic's GSM service offering. You have attributed United's connectivity deal to exclusively to Gogo, which is also factually incorrect.

Thank you for your comment. We invested more than two weeks in putting this spreadsheet together, endeavouring to be as accurate and comprehensive as possible. But of course there will be things we have missed – perhaps you could let us know specifics, so we can look into it? What are the wifi connectivity deals we have left out?
We have liaised with as many of the airlines as possible directly, but several did not reply to phone calls or emails so we were not able to source all the information we wanted (for example prices for Thai Airways and Egyptair). But when we do get it, we will update the chart.
According to the information we were sent directly by United, its provider is Gogo. It also says so on its website:
We have contacted Panasonic, which became the majority shareholder of Aeromobile in March 2012, for clarification.
