Do You Use Your Airline's In-Flight Entertainment?

Do You Use In-Flight Airline Entertainment?

You already know that I'm a big fan of Virgin America's in-flight entertainment system, and have been known to tune in to JetBlue's DirectTV programming a time or two. But for a lot of you, an airline's in-flight goodies may not be a reason to book a seat.

On a recent flight to LA, I noticed how few people actually use their seat-back TV sets to watch the tube, a movie, or play games, instead choosing to sleep or use their own gadgets to keep them busy.

I found a very handy chart on one of my favorite travel sites the other day that lists how airlines stack up against one another when it comes to entertaining their passengers. I was pretty happy with the results: most airlines are now offering some sort of in-flight WiFi, as well as music and movies via personal viewing sets on the seat backs. So what gives? Are you totally into your favorite airline's in-flight entertainment, or do you completely tune out when flying?

Virgin Atlantic to Australia (whom I fly all the time now to get back home) are awesome, have the best screens and a great variety of media to choose from on their flights!! I LOVE it! You can even charge up via USB :D

i try to avoid traveling places JetBlue doesn't fly (haha, only half kidding..) and this is one of my reasons.

I used it the way I use tv at home, I watched it while I ate. Otherwise I just listened to my ipod and slept.However, now that I own an iphone and it only has <b>12 hours of battery life</b>, I will probably be more apt to use the in-flight entertainment in the future or remember to bring my nano (which is much less of a battery suck).

I agree that it depends on the length. But if it's a seat back, I'll almost definitely use it.

Definitely. The shortest flight I usually take is 9 hours so you can bet I'll be watching some movies and taking the occasional quiz! I love those games ...
