If you are a Lufthansa Frequent Traveler (FTL) or Senator (SEN) and traveling around the globe a lot, the latest Lufthansa W-LAN update might be interesting for you too:

From 2004 all German Lufhansa Lounges will have W-LAN coverage (provided by Vodafone) and also New York's JFK Lounge will get its W-LAN access beginning next year. Other LH Lounges around the world will follow later in 2004.

Vodafone W-LAN is available at competitive rates. Prices depend on the duration of the Internet access irrespective of the amount of data transferred.

You can either pay your bill as part of your (German) Vodafone D2 mobile phone invoice and soon, also with other mobile phone networks as well as by credit card and redeeming miles from your Miles & More account (see list above).

Argh - now where the Lounges are W-LAN covered I'm going to lose my status... :cry:

Cheers ~ Arne

As a frequent flyer who has already brought a great deal of revenue to an airline, I don't like that they bring this into the lounge and then charge for it.  The article says that the price is 'competitive'--with whom?? First, when Vodafone is the only provider in the lounge,they are competitive with no one! Second, we have earned and paid for our lounge access through our tickets and high rates of flying.  In my opinion, to charge extra for Internet is wrong.

Oh, and no worries, Arne.  There are other places in most airports where Internet is still free, just NOT in the LH lounges!

I have also flown LH for along time and getting charged for loyalty to the Star Alliance group i think is wrong.  But if i know of other places in the Airport i will defiantly go, i know Austrian Air offers the free service in there lounge in Vienna.

The initial article is 2 years old and a lot of things changed. To be honest - at least in Germany I don't care anymore if a lounge has W-LAN or not, since UMTS was launched back in 2004 and since I have a UMTS flat plan since this fall. Yes, you are right - also my money they wont get for this service anymore.
If there is a free LAN, fine - I'm using it as a free service add-on, if not, I'm using my UMTS subscription anyway.
International (where roaming charges takes your right arm) it might looks different, there I'm using pay as you go W-LAN services from time to time but also UMTS - if available. Depends on the time I have to spend and impotency of the mails, etc. I have to send/receive.
