United Airlines Plane

Apple announced partnership with six major Airlines today the will allow travelers to charge their iPods in flight and integrate the seatback screens so that videos on the iPods can be viewed on the screens. The airlines (Air France, Continental, Delta, Emirates, KLM and United) expect that this capability will be rolled to their fleets in mid-2007.

It’s fitting that this announcement be made on the day on which Microsoft formally starts selling the Zune player. The wireless capability (limited as it is) incorporated in the Zune player makes it questionable that Zune will even be allowed to operate inflight.
