    Umm... Okay. I don't really get it.

    Scratch that, that's pretty cool. They could have games like NOVA on there and every kid could play

    I ride a lot of airplanes so I would find this amazing.

    That is a terrible idea. Airlines can barely make money now. 10 years ago you could have 2 bags & an inflight meal. Now you have to pay for every bag & they barely have snacks... I don't think it is wise for them to spend money on this kind of stuff b/c it will only raise the ticket price.

    well sounds to me like you are talking domestic.
    domestic flights = not worth it.

    this is GREAT for international.

    houston to dubai = 15 hours

    san francisco to dubai = 13 hours

    dallas to frankfurt = around 9 hours

    list can go on..

    13 hours+ is a long long long ride.
    and if the right airlines take this up, then this will be great.
    emirates airlines is an amazing airline, and if they add this (or when they do because they are top notch and will do great things for their travelers) then travelers will be mighty happy.

    The existing IFE systems probably cost more than this.

    Honestly unless they provided free Wifi, I think it would be useless. And for international flights, it would be slow and expensive if it was via satellite.
