Australian airline Qantas was the world’s first to trial the use of an Apple iPad as an in-flight entertainment unit. Passengers who boarded its Boeing 767-300 plane during February, were surprised to find the tablet device in replacement of the usual fixed screen at the back of their seats. A special Q Streaming app was loaded onto the iPads and can be accessed via the aircraft’s wireless connection. Passengers need to enter their seat number first, before being able to select and stream movies, music and entertainment programs directly onto their iPad.
