Blogging on board of a plane: Lufthansa's net connection



This time I am not writing about architecture, art or history... I'll be talking, however, about the simple pleasure of surfing the net on board of a plane, tens of miles high, as I am flying from Philadelphia for a short visit to my home country Tunisia. This is possible thanks to Lufthansa's new FlyNet wireless connection in cooperation with Boeing. Transatalantic flights take obviously long (Philadelphia-Francfort: 7 hours, 35 minutes) and it's really a very nice idea especially when Lufthansa's entertainment program is not really that attractive (usually one movie + a documentary... and this time the movie is nice "Meet Dick and Jane", but I already seen it).... The prices are a little bit expensive ($26 flat rate, $9 per hour...).... But it's certainly worth it... I am looking forward for expanding this to other air lines companies... So here I am publishing a post miles above the Atlantic... Really fascinating....

Hi... I just visited your blog... looks really interesting: art-blogging... I promise to write more on your works... Good Luck (by the way I like al-Mahdiyya: I participated in the excavations of the Fatimid Qasr and I am very well familiar with that area including the cemetery)
