Twenty years ago, I flew my first international flight from New York to Oslo. While I don’t remember what movies I watched on that flight, I remember craning my neck to see the screen in the middle of the aisle, incredibly grateful there was something to do.
The beauty of in-flight movies, passenger perspective
In-flight Internet? Passenger explains why he expects it
I subscribe to streaming video rental websites, and on flights with Internet access, I can watch my favorite movie. What better time to catch up on my favorite sources of entertainment than on a flight when I have nothing but time? Having the Internet available also gives me more options to pass the time when I do not want to watch the movie the airlines chose for my flight.
Passenger says, “The Internet, on my plane? No thanks!”
As a regular traveler, I try to keep up-to-date on all the latest developments in travel technology. Especially when it comes to planes. It seems like it’s at least every week that I’m reading an article about in-flight entertainment in a travel magazine. Well, here’s some news I wish they’d put in a traveler magazine instead: I don’t want the internet on my plane!
What I LOVE about in-flight entertainment systems
A few days ago, we posted comments from a passenger about what she hated about IFE. In this post, we have the comments from a different passenger after we asked her, “What do you love about in-flight entertainment systems?”
What I HATE about in-flight entertainment systems
“It might sound snobby, especially coming from a perpetual economy cabin patron, but the absolute most deflating thing to see when squeezing down the tight airplane aisles and shoving my carry-on into the cramped overhead bins is a 12-inch TV hanging from the ceiling.”
