Gaming on Connexion

My gaming portal idea isn't going anywhere, but its good to see some people playing games on airplanes.

I wonder how the latency will be over the satellite link. I don't know any technical details of the link, but I can only imagine that the ping would have to be pretty high. I mean, the packet is going: wifi to airplane, airplane to satellite, satellite to ground station, ground station to internet... then the return packet takes the same long path.
