You might remember that Bluebox recently mooted the idea of Apple’s iPad as an in-flight entertainment (IFE) device, and now looks like it has got a customer. Qantas’ budget carrier Jetstar Airways will be holding a trial of the service in the last two weeks of June, offering the iPad to passengers of flights that last 90 minutes or more for AUD10 ($8.40), and if business goes well, the service will be extended to the entire network. The App Store will obviously be disabled, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of apps will be included on the iPad when it’s offered to you. Would you shell out eight bucks to fiddle with the iPad throughout your flight, or do you prefer what Microsoft is offering?
