Delta equips 600th aircraft with seatback IFE

Delta has equipped its 600th aircraft with seat-back entertainment, meeting its end-of-year commitment early.

“We continue to invest in seat-back screens, because customers continue to tell us they’re important,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s senior vice-president and chief marketing officer. “With seat-back screens, customers don’t have to choose between using their phones or watching a movie. Whether they want to work, relax, or a little bit of both — we want to give our customers the ability to choose and make the most of their time in flight.”

The airline offers a free in-flight entertainment across all cabins with it’s IFE system, Delta Studio.

This month, in partnership with NEON, Delta Studio is bringing the documentary ‘Three Identical Strangers’ to customers in-flight, at the same time the documentary is debuting in theatres on the ground.

This offering is the first of its kind for Delta Studio, which also currently offers more than 300 movies, 550 TV show episodes, 12 channels of live satellite TV on select flights, more than 2,500 songs and a selection of podcasts and games.

Passengers can also choose to stream Delta Studio to their personal devices on the airline’s entire mainline fleet and most regional aircraft.
