Lufthansa is celebrating 1 year since introduction of their FlyNet service. And because of that on all planes from May 17 to May 23 there’s free of charge wireless Internet. Service goes via Boeing (you may register at http://www.connexionbyboeing.com/).
The service is good, but neither me, nor my neighbour (who happens to work for Lufthansa!) could get the VPN running. In anycase, at least we are connected! Such a wonderful feeling. I bought a skypeIn account, and have it up and running, together with the X-Pro from www.sip2go.com, so I actually use the Internet connection to make/receive phone calls. Not bad for overseas 10 hours flight.
Of course, one has to keep in mind if traveling in economy class, that there’s always ground to get one of the 3M screen filters, which do not allow the person sitting next to you to sneak into your monitor:)
So, here I am, 3 hours away from New York, enjoying the German airways:) And although until recently I preferred Austrian, I think that for daily flights, it’s useful to get Lufthansa because of the Internet access.
