Qantas Goes World Class by Offering Every Passenger an iPad 2

Qantas Airlines is going world class by adding Apple’s iPad 2 to it’s in-flight entertainment. Qantas is testing a six week trial program, offering all of it’s passengers an iPad 2 while flying on any of it’s planes.

All passengers on the aircraft will be issued an iPad 2 that is preloaded with the Qantas custom ‘Q Streaming’ iPad 2 app. From the Q Streaming app passengers can watch movies, streaming from five Wi-Fi access points on the Boeing 767-300 planes. One issue that must be tested is what the streaming experience will be like if all the 254 passengers are streaming on the iPad 2 at the same time. Qantas will be testing the 5 Wifi hotspots to observe how well they are able to meet the demand. Qantas will begin to install iPad 2 seat back holders on all their planes once the iPad 2 test program proves successful.

Been an iPad user from day one of its release. Apple has been innovative from the beginning and now the rest of the world is getting on board. It's great to be able to spread the word about one of their mobile devices.


Those Aussies are the best!
