Inflight iPod Download might be Offered by Airlines - Mp4 Converter

Updated April 11,2006

Companies that develop inflight entertainment (IFE) systems for airlines have been negotiating with Apple, they have the inclination to offer passengers with inflight iPod downloads. Proposed applications include seatback-based iPod docks with USB and charging ports, allowing passengers to charge song and video purchases to frequent-flyer miles, and adding other ecommerce applications. "Our interests are wider – not just Apple, but enabling any e-commerce on the aircraft. Music is one thing in that category we are working on," said an exec with Panasonic Avionics. However, numerous obstacles stand in the way of inflight iPod downloads, including changing Apple's licensing, so that songs downloaded directly to an iPod in the air could later be copied back to a customer's hard drive, and the issue of licensing and payment while a plane is in international airspace. But until present now, Apple seems not to be interested in this cooperation.
