The Airlines industry is enjoying a record year thanks to the continuing low fuel prices bringing more people to the airport vs driving or not traveling at all. With more passengers flying, airlines are looking at making flights more enjoyable and keeping patrons happy. One way of doing this is bring back free in flight entertainment.
- American carriers are investing in in-flight entertainment again, installing seatback screens for the passengers enjoyment.
- This increase in entertainment from American carriers is thanks to record profits caused by cheap fuel prices.
- Some argue that there is no need for seatback entertainment, when nowadays most anyone has some sort of device to stream on.
“When more and more passengers are taking gadgets on board, it feels like something of a throwback for Delta and American to bring back the entertainment norms of a decade ago.”
