    This link gives more information.

    This part is interesting:
    Wonder how this works to "request access data before your journey".
    In addition, I used to access Telekom access points via iPass - would be good to know if Flynet is included then.
     
  4. A reason more to fly LH even when the FIRST Class Seats are not the best !

    The BA1 also has onboard Internet, but quite expensive as it is via mobile phone.
    Looking forward to flynet on my routes.

    I thought you could think around the corner.[​IMG] Of course not BA. I meant LH with flynet. Hope it is clearer now.

    From what I remember of the original announcement, Flynet was going to be rolled out onto the 333s near the start of the new program. I also have vague recollections of reading that there were problems mating the system with the existing equipment. Is there anywhere (other than LFCorsten's list above) that publishes the list of air frames that have been rolled out?

    I don't think the list in post #2 means FlyNet has already been fitted on those aircrafts. Check the lists linked from post #1 of this thread.
