While everyone worries about how fast and how much Lufthansa's in flight internet access is going to be no one seems to be asking the most important question: will I be able to plug my laptop in to a power source? Given that unless you are blessed with some form of recent Apple laptop you'll be lucky to have a battery life of more than two hours, especially with the insane power drain of Wi-Fi, having power sockets will be much more important. Of course they'll probably only be available in business class. For all I know they may already be.
And while it's very nice that it'll be available throughout the flight you have to wonder how many people in the less than capacious confines of economy will use it. Having tried it, the use of a laptop in economy seating is not much fun.
