Your favourite movie cut off because your plane has landed at its destination? Well keep watching, says British Airways, with the UK airline’s entertainment screens staying active before takeoff and after touchdown.
The carrier currently starts its in-flight entertainment system once the aircraft has taken off and switches of off 15-20 minutes before the aircraft lands.
However, commencing 1 December this year, British Airways passengers will be able to access in-flight movies, TV shows and music from the moment they board the plane till they walk off, a move the carrier’s director of brands and customer experience Frank van der Post believes will make travelling “even better for customers”.The service was given the green light by the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority and will be available on its fleet of long haul aircraft.
