Keeping the kids amused and happy on a long flight can present its own unique challenge. These days, you aren’t just stuck with whatever is playing on the in flight monitors. Companies like American Airlines now make available about 250 movies on international flights, as well as countless TV shows, music, and games. Having this sort of entertainment at your fingertips makes the flight go that much faster; particularly for children.
It’s not just the screen on the back of the seat in front of you that has to be used either. The newest and newly refurbished American Airlines aircraft have multiple entertainment viewing options, which also include an overhead video screen showing NBC entertainment and comedy shows, and Samsung Galaxy Tablets for first and business class passengers.
But of particular interest to families is the option to bring along your own device such as a smartphone, laptop or tablet, which you can then stream movies and TV shows to after purchasing them. The streaming video service is currently available on several American Airlines aircraft such as the Boeing 737. It’s simple to get the streaming video up and running as you just connect to the specified signal, select the show or movie you wish to watch, download the app or plugin if required, create an account and then get started viewing the programs. The benefit of this service is that you gain access to the entire library of movies and TV available on your flight, and watch them on your own device. The kids simply need to take out their iPad and they’ll be set to go with hours of time-passing in-flight entertainment.
Streaming in-flight entertainment on American Airlines flights is a perfect way to keep the children (and adults) busy on a long flight. This can help make the time fly by faste for the kids, and makes the trip all that more pleasant for parents as well!
