Boeing's decision to abandon its Connexion project is not going down well with the airlines. Etihad has followed Lufthansa in publicly getting annoyed with Boeing. "Our experience with Connexion is very good and our guests are keen to use it. We are talking to Boeing in terms of short and long-term solutions by looking at a number of options," said Ian Fergusson-Brown, spokesman for Etihad Airways. "The airline is keen to meet customer expectations and our goal is to put the system into the backs of the seats. This is important for our guests to access the Internet," Brown told Gulf News. Currently, Connexion by Boeing is fitted on Etihad's Boeing 777 aircraft and plans are under way to introduce the system on the Airbus fleet. Other airlines, including Korean, are talking about compensation. Aug 26, 2006
