British Airways To Allow Passengers To Finish Movies Even After The Plane Has Landed

British Airways To Allow Passengers To Finish Movies Even After The Plane Has Landed
World

There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of your in-flight movie when your plane starts to descend and the screen shuts off. British Airways is looking to change all of that.

Starting Saturday, British Airways will allow passengers on most flights to continue watching their movies, even after the plane has landed.

Passengers will be able to watch movies, tv, and listen to music, all throughout the landing process, and even while taxiing to the gate.

Safety announcements would come over the passengers’ headphones, while the picture remains on the screen.

British Airway has been given clearance for this new program by the Civil Aviation Authority in the UK, allowing passengers to have in-flight entertainment during their entire duration aboard the aircraft.

“British Airways will become the first UK airline to enable customers to watch their in-flight entertainment screens from the second they reach their seat to the moment they arrive at their destination,” said a British Airways spokesperson.

The extension to in-flight entertainment is part of BA’s $6.5 billion investment program which includes new aircraft, refurbished cabins and improved lounges.
