Since spring 2004 Lufthansa is the first airline to offer a broadband Internet service with its own free portal. It means you can now use your time on board to do all the things you didn't get done on the ground or didn't have the opportunity to do in the air.

To celebrate the first birthday of FlyNet from May 17 to May 23 you can surf for free on all Lufthansa long-haul flights!

Lufthansa and Connexion by Boeing invite you to test FlyNet for free! FlyNet, a wireless broadband internet access which is available in all service classes on board.

How it Works

  • Register at www.connexionbyboeing.com (Sign-up) or on board during your flight. You have to type in your username and password. This is not necessary if you are already registered with FlyNet.
  • Sign in during flight, using your agreed user name and password (Sign-in).

Please note: For signing in you will need to key in the number of your credit card. It will not be debited if you use FlyNet in the period of May 17 to 23.

FlyNet is available on 50% of all Lufthansa long-haul flights. You will need a Notebook or PDA with WiFi b compatible WLAN adapter.

That's cool, unfortunately I don't have a long-haul flight on my agenda yet - just a flight to the UK - does it counts!? Lufthansa, can you please provide FlyNet on your 16th May flights between MUC <-> LHR <-> MUC as well!? ;-)

Cheers ~ Arne

I'm assuming they use a broadband connection via satellite? Now if the planes had power outlets, I can see a whole legion of gamers playing online on the plane...

As long as you are flying 1st or business class, no problem... wink

In the First and Business Class on long-distance flights our seats are equipped with laptop connections. So even on board you can enjoy unrestricted use of your laptop. And the very best: Thanks to new technology you do not even need an adapter. You just plug your PC in like you do at home and off you go! The sockets on board are suitable for both two-pin Euro flat plugs as well as two- or three-pin US plugs.

That's the "worst case"! Imagine you are sitting in the middle of two "business" guys: one is using Skype and the other his mobile phone (if allowed - sooner or later). I hate the idea that you are allowed to make phone call on aircrafts.

Now when I think about it I understand what you mean but the fun part would be calling home and saying "hey what are you doing? Im 12 000 fet up in the sky"
