A common reason why passengers enjoy flying airlines such as Jetblue is that they offer free in-flight entertainment that they actually want to watch! Many legacy carriers within the United States have lagged behind on this front, but American Airlines is seeking to change that.
In a press release this week, American Airlines announced that it will be offering its complete library of movies, TV shows, and music with no charge to the customer! The airline boldly claimed that they had “best and largest content library among the U.S. carriers” which will be made available to passengers via the seatback entertainment system or on on a personal device. American Airlines said:
Customers traveling on American flights will be able to enjoy premium shows like HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “Silicon Valley” as well as new movie releases such as “Captain America: Civil War,” “The Boss” and “The Lobster.” Available inflight entertainment will vary by aircraft and WI-FI type. Nearly 300 of American’s aircraft have seatback entertainment, with more being added every month.
