Lufthansa relaunches in-flight internet service

Business class travelers who need to catch up on some work during a flight, will now be able to connect to the internet the next time they fly.

According to Air Transport World, Lufthansa is relaunching its FlyNet in-flight internet service after a four year hiatus.

The service will first be available on some flights to North America, according to the airline, and then the airline plans to make it available on all routes by the end of 2011.

The first flight to receive the internet connection will be one between Frankfurt and New York's JFK Airport. The aircraft will be a A330, and will feature lie-flat seats and luxurious amenities that will make passengers as comfortable as they can be.

"In-flight Internet on-board our long-haul flights is an innovation in the interests of our customers," Lufthansa board member, Thierry Antinori, told the news source."FlyNet complements the consistent communications service offering for Lufthansa customers at all points of the travel chain."
