The days of having to endure a long single-aisle airliner flight without in-flight entertainment or internet connectivity (IFEC) appear to be nearing their end – in certain parts of the world at least. Research by FlightGlobal shows an increasing number of operators offering passengers content – streamed to their own devices or available on seatback or overhead screens – or web access. Six out of 10 Airbus and Boeing narrowbodies today feature some form of IFEC. However, the picture differs depending on manufacturer, as well as region, with the technology much more entrenched in North America, for instance, than in Europe.
