Airlines To Offer In-Flight iPod Services

Six airlines, including Continental, Delta, and United, will offer seat connections to power iPods, and show video stored in the iPod on a seat-back display.

Apple Computer is working with six major airlines to integrate the popular iPod portable media player with in-flight entertainment systems.

Under the agreement, the airlines plan to offer iPod seat connections to power and charge the devices, and to show video stored in the iPod on a seat back display, Apple said Tuesday. The airlines are Air France, Continental, Delta, Emirates, KLM and United. The services will be available in mid-2007.

Apple is working with Panasonic Avionics to try to convince more airlines to offer iPod services. The computer maker has been working for a while to get automakers to integrate their entertainment systems with the iPod. More than 70 percent of 2007 model U.S. cars currently offer iPod connectivity, according to Apple.
