research – best in-flight entertainment systems

Tested: best in-flight entertainment systems reviewed

American Airlines

The entertainment has improved on AA’s newest long-haul flights, one of which we took from Heathrow to Dallas Forth Worth. The choice of content is huge, access is via a touchscreen, and the noise-cancelling headphones significantly improve sound quality. The Panasonic eX2 system felt at full stretch here, though, as our system crashed twice while loading games and had to be rebooted by cabin crew. “I found the remote too sensitive,” says Anne-Marie Scichili. “And the fact that you can’t plug in your own headphones is quite frustrating.”



One of my earliest childhood memories was listening to the BBC radio programme “Listen With Mother“, which always opened with the phrase “Are you sitting comfortably? – then I’ll begin”. The programme, full of stories and music, was transmitted every weekday for 15 minutes just before lunch time, and caught the attention and imagination of children across generations (it ran from 1950 until 1982).


Dette er følelsen af at blive underholdt. Noget man glæder sig til når man skal ud at rejse. Fejre at man rejser

Assignment Information

School project.


Jane Staal Kolbeck, Kia Karlsen, Frank Roth and Kenneth Andersen


Why Scandinavian Airlines?

We have chosen Scandinavian Airlines because it is a company that is both flying with businessmen and charter guests. They have an IFE system today but not nearly as advanced as we would like.


Assignment Brief

An Airline company wants to modernise their inflight
entertainment system.
The new system should provide relevant experiences
to 2 different target groups:
• Frequent travellers – business men/women on their
way or returning from meetings or conventions
• Holiday travellers – families with children

An Airline company wants to modernize their inflight
entertainment system.
• The new system should be substantially different
from existing systems and will be used to brand the
airline company as a new and fresh way of travel.
• The new system DOES NOT have to be physically
the same as existing systems

Set up a BLOG to document the entire development proces
• Set up a research plan – market research, user research, visual
• Document your conceptual thinking (mind maps, sketches, notes)
• Create a paper prototype to test parts of your concept – document
test with video
• Create a flow chart for your concept & create sketch if you are
changing physical layout of in-flight system
• Create a prototype in Balsamiq or Axure
• 1 or 2 Photoshop layouts of final designs
