Right then, I don’t recall ever personally writing off the Apple iPad as a fad that won’t impact in-flight entertainment (having simply posted a blog about why it probably won’t do so in the near-term, ahem).
BUT, equally I don’t think the argument posed by Shashank Nigam of Simpliflying – about how the much-touted tablet may revolutionize the airline industry – should be ignored.
So let’s read and discuss.
A key quote from Nigam:
I’m not talking about every passenger carrying on-board an iPad. That’s probably not possible. At least not very soon, and not across nations. What I’m suggesting is that it might be a good idea for airlines that do not have personal in-flight entertainment systems installed, to consider buying iPads to rent them out to the passengers.
