Internet Onboard

Thu Sep 01, 2005 12:15 am

Korean Air has now put internet on Some of their U.S routes which include New York and Los Angeles. Asiana Airlines also has started internet on their 777's. Is there other airlines that provide internet instead of Lufthansa?

SK was the first airline to have the whole longhaul fleet equipped with internet. And it is now running smoothly from what I have heard...

In addition, SQ is adding it to their fleet starting with the 744 first. The 380 is scheduled to have it when SQ takes delivery of them.

Think you're right, BA (I think) was the second, who trialled the same service on flights to IAD, but never ordered the product.

No... We live in the technology challenged US of A. It seems our govt's are so worried about protecting business and special interest groups and all sorts of other BS that the citizens get shafted a lot. We get most cool gadgets and toys last and pay high prices for less. Cell phones, internet, etc.

That all depends on the carrier.

I am pretty sure Iberia has it in the new Business Plus installed on all of the A340-600 fleet and I think two of the A340-300 fleet.

My collaborator was emailing from SK on his way to ARN - we were having a great time. But talking to him today, he said he got a bill for US$50 on his visa card  Sad

LH was the first airline to offer onboard internet. Now, not all but some of its fleet offer FlyNet svs.

SQ already has introduced internet onboard on flights SIN/LHR

If I am not mistaken SK is the only airline offering WIFI onboard.
