Lufthansa to offer broadband internet on Middle East flights

If you are someone who spends most of his waking hours connected to the internet either via a laptop or an ipad or a smartphone, long haul flights become an experience in solitary confinement. When you are 10,000 meters above the surface of the earth and have six more hours before you touch down you crave to update your Facebook status. You long to check your emails and you wish you could be BBming your group. The wait is now over for Lufthansa passengers. Most Middle East flights will now have wifi internet available throughout the plane - even if you are sitting in the last row of economy.

People will now be able to surf the internet, skype, or update their status - for a price. For Euro 10.95 you can acess the internet for an hour. For Euro 19.95 you can enjoy it for the duration of the flight.

For those who thought this was one way to get away from the boss - you have to find some other hole to hide in!
