      I Googled around a bit and found that. Interestingly, nothing like all of Delta's airplanes have those antennas.

      So now I want to know what *this* antenna is. This airplane doesn't have the GoGo antennas on the aft fuselage... Is this the Gogo 2Ku antenna that obviates the need for the small antennas on the aft fuselage?

      yep, they have been retrofitting their fleet, starting with wide body airplanes last year. no more ATG
