“Can you hear me now?” might soon become as familiar a refrain to airborne satcom users as it is to those earthbound customers who use Verizon.

Under the arrangement, Verizon Airfone will offer the Iridium global communications as a supplement to the existing MagnaStar system when flying outside areas of domestic coverage.
