It’s no secret that technology has made some major transformations to the way we consume entertainment. In the last 20 years, flatscreen TVs quickly went from an expensive novelty item to a mainstay in the average American household.
Today, we expect those kinds of incredible screens to be in other parts of our daily lives from vending machines to inflight entertainment systems. That said, if you can’t remember the last time one of your passengers said “wow” while using your aircraft’s entertainment system, it might be time for an upgrade.
Here are a few signs your inflight entertainment system is using technology that may be better off fossilized than on your aircraft:
- Your passengers have to tap their screens multiple times. Your inflight entertainment system might be outdated if your passengers have to jab their fingers against their touchscreens to get them to respond. Old tech can take a while to respond, which can frustrate your customers and leave them dissatisfied with their flight.
- You can’t remember the name of your inflight entertainment providers. When you use inflight entertainment, you want to be sure you’re using high-quality technology. That’s why it’s a problem when you can’t remember the name of your inflight entertainment providers. Either your tech is too old and needs to be replaced by a new system or the providers you settled for aren’t high-quality enough to remember.
- You can’t read important text on the screens. The screens used for your inflight entertainment systems are also used to show your passengers what to do in case of an emergency. If you can’t read the important text on these screens, your passengers can’t read them either. This is a major safety risk and also a major sign you need some new screens.
Approximately 41% of airline passengers watch movies to pass the time while they’re on a flight compared to the 21% of passengers who read and 17% who sleep. To provide the best possible experience for your passengers, you need to make sure you’re using inflight entertainment systems that are up-to-date with the latest technology.
