Lufthansa will again take a lead in inflight connectivity on board and is relaunching its FlyNet services in cooperation with Pannasonic's eXConnect service as of next year. Rollover will be quite fast since most of the LH's long/haul fleet is already equiped with necessary antennas and instalations. The service will first be offered on transantlantic services and then progressivly introduced to the rest of the network.

I wonder what price point they will offer it at?

The last time LH had it onboard, I seem to remember it was prohibitively expensive, something like 10 euros an hour... do I remember that right?

That's not really expensive, comparing it to the prices of the Wlan networks at FRA.

One should think the A380 flying TATL should be fitted first with this option?



Never ask somebody if he's a pilot. If he is, he will let you know soon enough!

I used Connexion all the time and I believe I paid around USD30 for an entire flight.

I'm happy to see it come back.  yes

I can't understand why a first class customer pays tens of thousands of $$$ for the air fare, and is then charged another $30 for the internet. That's like going to a fancy expensive restaurant and being billed extra for the salad dressing. It should be free for first and business class customers.

I agree absolutely! They should just add the 29.99 USD to the C and F ticket price, that's definitely a better way to get paid for offering the internet access than asking the C and F pax to swipe their credit cards.

Anyway, I am glad that they offer onboard internet again!

Oh yes, and offering power-plugs should be standard for LH in the future, even on every seat Y class. It would be a bit unfair to let the Y pax pay for unlimited internet access during the whole flight with knowing that their notebooks run out of power after a few hours.
