American Airlines is to expand its in-flight entertainment (IFE) streaming service this May across its fleet of Airbus A319s, A320s and A321s.
A further 200 aircraft, supplementing the 500 aircraft that already offer the American Spotlight streaming IFE service, will offer six movies free of charge to passengers to celebrate this IFE expansion. Passengers can choose between Big Hero 6, Captain America, Frozen, Guardians of the Galaxy, Into The Woods and Maleficent until 30 June.
American is also offering free, exclusive programming from NBC Universal through streaming, seat-back and overhead entertainment. The streaming service uses Gogo’s video player plug-in.
“With the expansion of our digital entertainment, customers travelling on the majority of our mainline aircraft will know they have in-flight entertainment available through their personal device or on the seatback in front of them,” says Fernand Fernandez, American Airlines’ vice president, global marketing. “Our customers have asked for entertainment no matter which cabin they prefer to fly, and we’re delivering.”
