Are they serious £23m per plane to give it a software upgrade or does that include hardware upgrades to allow the software upgrade?

This is a truly bespoke service, and one which avoids the security risks associated with USB sticks or networked connections: each software upgrade will be typed in manually by a technician seated in the plane with a wired keyboard in her/his lap.
