In a move designed to differentiate its offering from the competition and to gain some media attention we might add, United Airlines announced a new service on their international flights to enable passengers to use and charge their iPods and iPhones.
Not only will passengers be able to use their Apple products of choice — cause they can already do that with any airline — but they will be able to connect their iPods/iPhones to the specially designed viewing station docks on the back of every seat, which will allow them to watch videos and listen to the music on a bigger screen!
The bad news is that this is for the first and business class only at this stage and on select flights only. It will take up to two years to equip each of the international-flyin’ planes with the technology. In the meantime, it’s ok to watch a movie on your iPod/iPhone even without that fancy dock…
