Frequent fliers in the business world will be used to spending hours in the air, but there’s no need for those hours to be unproductive. More and more airlines today understand the importance of providing facilities for business travelers and other customers to use their electronic devices on board. They also see the importance and value in being able to stay in touch.

Lufthansa has equipped First Class and Business Class seats on all of its long-haul flights with power sockets. There’s no need for an adapter because these sockets support two-pin, flat European plugs and two- or three-pin US plugs. They can provide up to 70 watts output – more than enough for a tablet or laptop.
Anyone who needs to get in touch with the office urgently has the option of using Lufthansa’s Sky Phone. Since normal mobile phone service is generally forbidden during flights, this can be a very useful service. It currently costs $9.95 per minute to use the Sky Phone on long-haul Lufthansa flights and charges are automatically billed to your credit card for convenience.
Just because you’re on board a flight doesn’t mean that you can’t get some work out of the way and it’s a great use of your time. So, whether you're flying to Munich or Chicago, you'll be able to keep working with Lufthansa.
