Today we’re excited to announce new in-flight entertainment choices like surfing free content on the web, streaming video on your laptop and expanded entertainment options to help make your flight experience even better…and more entertaining! There are a lot of new improvements so let’s dive right in:
Delta Connect is the new in-flight Wi-Fi page that you’ll use when you’re accessing Gogo, streaming movies and TV on demand from your laptop, browsing free content on the web and accessing other in-flight entertainment systems.
This new page will offer you an expanded range of free content from entertainment and shopping (Gilt.com and OpenTable.com, for example) to flight and destination information like concerts, festivals and events. Look to the right for a preview!
The best part? You don’t have to purchase a Gogo pass to access this free content!
Entertainment On Demand
Now you’ll be able to browse and stream TV and movies using in-flight Wi-Fi, all without purchasing a Gogo pass! Plus, everything you rent in-flight will still be available for you to watch at least 24 hours after your flight lands.
This feature will be available on all 16 of our Boeing 757-300 aircraft to start, and available at an introductory price for TV ($.99) and movies ($3.99). Entertainment on demand will be available for laptops and expanded to tablet and mobile devices by early 2012 on 757-300s.
Airbus A330 In-Flight Entertainment Upgrades
If you’re flying on any of our 32 Airbus A330 aircraft you’ll see a redesigned in-flight entertainment experience with more entertainment choices—150% more movies and television, music and games for you to enjoy!
All of these new options will be completed by the end of 2011, and the improved in-flight entertainment system will expand to all of our 300 aircraft equipped with personal in-flight entertainment by mid-2012.
Let us know what you think of the new changes and we look forward to hearing your feedback!
