iPads for Qantas In-flight Entertainment

Australian carrier, Qantas will provide its passengers with individual iPads that can stream more than 200 hours of movies, TV shows and music. This is available in all classes for flights from Sydney to Honolulu. In contrast, American Airlines passengers are provided with Galaxy Tab 10.1 instead on selected routes such as New York’s JFK airport and Los Angeles and international flights to Europe and South America.

Qantas uses Q streaming, the aircraft’s in-flight entertainment technology that streams entertainment programs directly to the iPads using the planes on-board Wi-Fi. Presently, only movies, TV shows and music are available for streaming. Qantas says that more apps such as interactive games, travel and business-related apps, magazines and as well as digital newspapers will be added in the future.

In addition to this new service, Qantas also refitted its Boeing 767 aircraft with leather covers in business class and while new leather headrest covers and arm caps are provided for economy class. It also installed new carpet, lighting, curtains and dividers on board. Qantas is the largest airline in Australia and the oldest continuously operated airline in the world. It is also the second oldest airline in the world.
