Lufthansa is to relaunch its FlyNet in-flight internet service from the middle of next year. The airline was one of the pioneers of in-flight wi-fi, launching the Flynet service in 2003 and running it until 2006. The service ended when the company providing the service, Connexion by Boeing, turned it off. At the time, Boeing said that no market for the service had materialised. However, many American airlines now have in-flight wi-fi on large parts of their domestic fleets while OnAir is providing in-flight data services to a numebr of airlines, including British Airways.
