CONNEXION, the Boeing in-flight internet product has been on a sales tour using its now 25-year old 737-400 demonstrator/technical aircraft. Since ABTN first tested the system in summer 2003 it has been upgraded and improved with a selection of four TV channels now built into the system and available on your laptop and (at least on the demonstrator) on a massive 42” plasma screen. It”s all gone wireless too, its speed very acceptable. In-flight telephones can also be fitted by client airlines but a much cheaper alternative is the use of Internet telephones via laptop. Airlines who have the system, or have signed up, include All Nippon Airways, Asiana, China Airlines, El Al Israeli Airlines, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Lufthansa German Airlines, Scandinavian Airlines System and Singapore Airlines.
