Apple has teamed up with a handful (if you have a 6-fingered hand) of airlines to offer iPod integration, making your long flight a bit more comfortable. Air France, Continental, Delta, Emirates, KLM and United will deliver the first "seamless integration" between the iPod and their own in-flight entertainment systems. These airlines will provide passengers iPod seat connections that will power and charge your iPods in-flight and allow your video content to be viewed on the seat back displays!
"There is no better traveling companion than an iPod, and now travelers can power their iPods during flight and even watch their iPod movies and TV shows on their seat back displays," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing. "We're excited to work with Air France, Continental, Delta, Emirates, KLM and United to offer iPod users an even better in-flight experience."
The in-flight iPod perks will be available starting in mid-2007 and Apple is working with Panasonic Avionics Corporation to bring even more airlines in-flight iPod connectivity in the future.
I hope JetBlue is next in line. I bet Steve Jobs' Gulfstream already has this feature. Thanks for sharing, Steve!
Thanks to all who sent this in!
