Write a short summary of what happens in the radio or audio execution or campaign.

The good thing about a long flight: you can relax for a few hours. The bad thing about it: you are completely cut off from the outside world. Because on many transcontinental flights there is still no reliable WIFI on board. Lufthansa FlyNet, Lufthansa’s fast on-board WIFI, offers all passengers on long-distance flights the opportunity to be available at all times – even above the clouds. In this radio commercial we experience the human disasters that occur on the ground, while the affected person in the air doesn't notice anything about them. A minute-by-minute time protocol gradually describes the events that lead to a young man questioning his own origins and emigrating to Spain, after a fatal typing mistake by his father. However, the father doesn't notice anything on the plane. Only after switching on his phone after landing he realizes that a lot can happen in 6 hours.

Script. Provide the full radio advert script in English.

Commercial: “Father” 7:45 As he boards his flight, Mr. Weaver responds to a text from his son. Autocorrect replaces the words “sure either” with “your father.” 8:01 John Weaver receives the text: “I’m not your father.” 8:25 John frantically looks for his birth certificate. 8:49 The birth certificate is nowhere to be found. But John does find pictures of his mom and her college boyfriend Enrique, from Spain. 9:25 Enrique Fulgencio Hernández has an incoming call from overseas. 10:14 After an intense talk with his wife, Senor Hernández accepts paternity without reservation. 10:20 John now wants to be called “Juan”. 12:01 In a small village in Catalonia, the midday prayers are dedicated to el hijo perdido – the lost son. 1:32 Mr. Weaver lands and turns on his phone and sees 82 messages from his son. He then spots Juan boarding a flight bound for Barcelona. (Off:) A lot can happen in six hours. With Lufthansa FlyNet, you don’t miss anything – even while above the clouds. Say yes to the world. Lufthansa.
