Boeing 787-8 Flights NRT - SJC Finally Has In-Flight WiFi

Finally after 5 or so years, these older 787-8 Dreamliners finally have in-flight WiFi !! Never thought it would happen.

I wonder what the catalyst was to finally make the decision to upgrade these older planes after such a long duration

Was it only a sub-fleet of 787-8s that did/didn't have WiFi? A couple years ago I flew NH BKK-NRT (788) connecting to NRT-LAX (77W) and the 787-8 had WiFi then. I only remember because I asked the F/A on BKK-NRT if I bought an "all day" subscription could I continue to use it on NRT-LAX, and the answer was no, because the two aircraft used two different WiFi systems (from different providers, I assume).

The 787-8 I flew had the (horrible!) cradle seats in J, which I hope you did *not* have on a long-haul flight.
