Lufthansa is relaunching its inflight broadband Internet service, called FlyNet. The carrier was one of the first to provide inflight access, from May 2004 until the end of 2006, when its partner, Connexion by Boeing, withdrew the service. Passengers once again will be able to access the web with a computer or PDA, and send cell phone text messages. Pricing for the service has not been announced. Lufthansa hopes to equip a major part of its long-range fleet with FlyNet in the next 12 months.
