iPhone + dental floss = IFE

A picture says a thousand words and this little gem above – sitting on the In-flight Entertainment blog – is no exception. It is even sparking some fun discussion among the Twitterati.

Responding to the pic, Aviation Week writer and editor and well-known Twitter #avgeek Benet Wilson says: “Nature abhors a vacuum!”

Wow, what does that say about legacy IFE systems on transatlantic flights?

Lufthansa soon will reignite high-speed Internet on transatlantic flights. When it does, American et al are going to need to give a hard think about their own overseas offerings.

    Hmmm. Cute – but what if there’s no dental floss on the plane?

    My solution: Use a sick bag – least of all there’s plenty on the plane…
