To the occasion of my move from the Mobile devices sector into the aerospace industry as of next month, I decided to revisit In-flight entertainment systems (IFE) one more time (even if my new job will not be related to IFEs).
There seem to be vast differences among airlines and plane models as to the quality of IFE systems offered. In particular, while some are quite responsive, intuitive and easy to use, others are slow, buggy, or confusing. I’ve compiled a few examples of IFE systems below but I’d like to hear from you, which IFE system of which airline you feel is the easiest to use?
Please leave a comment below (if possible, link to a photo or video so everyone can see why it is your favorite).
For those systems that stand out, I will then try to contact the respective airlines to find out more about the authors and the design ideas behind their IFEs.
