IFE: iPad Flight Entertainment

Image from Apples Website

Just read this article ‘Apple iPad could revolutionise travel guides and inflight entertainment’ .

I suddenly had a vision of passengers bringing on board their own entertainment tailored to their own preferences, not a bad vision considering the considerable investment made by operators into the IFE industry.

Just imagine there would be no installation/maintenance of cable to every cabin seat, expensive hardware failure, happy passengers playing Monopoly, Scrabble etc via WiFi, not forgetting access to operators website to update/up sell products such as Car hire, Hotels, Duty Free etc.

Operators would become ISP’s ….. everybody’s happy, could this be a vision of the future ?
