“Where am I? What is that? What’s the story?” These are basic questions asked by all travelers. It’s not easy, however, to get satisfying answers at 35,000 feet while actually engaged in the act of flying from place to place.

Recently, I had the great pleasure of destroying several digEplayer L7s, Apple iPads and Samsung Tabs. The objective was to determine just how well these devices can take wear and tear. Admittedly, some of my tests are rather brutal and maybe not completely realistic. However, we learned several interesting things through the tests.
I recently began a series of print ads highlighting different features and history of the digEplayer. I think the behind the scenes is just as much if not more fun than the end result. So I’m opening the curtains to allow you to peer into the creative process.
As I listen to all the capabilities of the newest IFE systems and advantages of connectivity, I keep coming back to the same question - are airlines operationally prepared to handle real time customer service in an online environment?

The in-flight entertainment and connectivity market was boiling and looking for change throughout 2010 and then erupted during 2011. Several evolutions in technology finally emerged after years of discussion and development. To be honest, I think we are still on the cusp of those evolutions
Last year, we released a passenger study addressing hot trends at the time. However, so much has changed since then. So today, we are happy to announce an updated 2011 Passenger Survey based on all new research.
