    OT: All airplanes should have Internet...

    Hi guys,

    Flying to Germany via Lufthansa...and besides from their awesome business class seats, the best thing, is that they have wireless Internet. Too damned cool. Surfing the net at 34,000 feet has always been my dream! Going to help a friend pick up his CGT, so like the previous 2 years, if there's anything to report on, I'll definitely do a write-up.

    RC...if you're reading this, please respond to my PM. We haven't been able to meet the past 2 years I've been in Germany and it would be great if we could hook up this time, because after this trip, I don't know when I'll be in Germany again.

    Cheers,
    -Nick

    Hmm. So it's not like American Airlines. Sometimes I wonder if AA recruits their flight attendants from Denny's.

    Reading the first post of the thread is the way to answer your question.

    Lufthansa!

    Re: Last pic...

    ha awesome

    Re: Last pic...

    how is the internet speed?

    things are developing really fast these days, oriented towards the customer's comfort...

    first it was conventional power outlets on all business/first class seats, then it was wired internet, now WI FI? superb.

    Re: Last pic...

    Is it offered in all seating areas??

    Re: Last pic...

    Moogle: The speed varied. I was connected at about 40 Mbps the whole trip. You're supposed to be able to connect at 54 Mbps, but I rarely got that. I guess, the more people that were using the system with you, the slower it got.

    Ray -euro cobra: Yes, available in all classes.

    Cheers,
    -Nick
