Airplanes can be pretty boring, especially when your in-flight entertainment is an obstructed view of a TV screen with a terrible movie on. American Airlines has found a way to remedy this for future travelers. Later this year American Airlines will stock over 6,000 Galaxy Tab 10.1’s in their premier cabins.
Samsung will be customizing these devices for specific American Airlines needs, which include extra memory and a UI for AA’s in-flight entertainment.
Flights that will be included in this upgrade will be listed below.
- Transcontinental flights: Between New York’s JFK and Los Angeles; JFK and San Francisco; Miami and Los Angeles served with 767-200 and 767-300 aircraft
- Transcontinental flights departing from Boston to Los Angeles served with 757 aircraft
- International flights to and from Europe and South America served with 767-300 aircraft
All I can say is, hopefully these flights will have Wi-Fi, because a lot of things you do on a tablet require an internet connection. What do you think? Would you enjoy using a Galaxy Tab 10.1 on your transcontinental flight?
