Lufthansa Bringing Back Wi-Fi In 2008


German airline Lufthansa is making a concerted effort to resurrect the Connexion service that Boeing killed off last year. Connexion was a Wi-Fi service available on 60 of 80 long-haul planes to business class passengers. If you’re unfamiliar with Connexion then I don’t blame you because it never took off stateside and was widely available in Europe and Asia and select flights to the US. Lufthansa will not disclose who will provide the new Wi-Fi service but many are speculating that T-Mobile is the frontrunner to bring the popular service back to the airline that “helped give birth to in-flight internet access.” Doesn’t that paint a pretty picture?
