I really enjoyed my trip back east. I discovered a couple of new things offered by the airline. I realize every airline offers different things so I'm speaking only of the one I traveled.
of all, the newer air planes have plugs so you can either plug in or
use a USB plug to power your mobile device or computer for the whole
trip. This is great when you are on a 3 to 5 hour or longer trip.
second item are free movies. I downloaded the app to my tablet so I
could watch movies while in the air. The selection isn't huge but there
are enough for any long trip. The movies stream onto your device when
you get above or below 10,000 feet.
The movies are not
the newest releases which is fine because I don't usually get a chance
to go to theaters. I watched "X men Apocalypse", "Tarzan", and a comedy
about neighbors, one group who were spies while the others were being
investigated. There are also a few television shows such as National
Geographic, a couple food shows and a few HGTV shows.
love having access to streaming videos while I'm up in the air. I hate
having to pay for the airline issued tablet when I have my own. If you
want the latest releases, you have to pay for the airline devices or
bring your own.
The newest offering is the
ability to chat with others while you are in transit. This is just chat
so you can't send any pictures but its great if you want to spend time
talking to others.
They still sell meals which are kind
of expensive but I bring my own food so I don't have to pay for it.
They never really have hot meals I want to eat. I'd have to buy a snack
pack which is ok but I'd rather have a decent meal.
Long story, short, the 8 hours of travel time (in air time) went faster by having access to the movies. I really enjoyed it.
Have a good day.
