Qatar Airways passengers will have access to FIFA World Cup matches live in flight, thanks to a partnership between Panasonic Avionics, Inmarsat, and IMG’s Sport24.
Qatar Airways is not shy about shifting providers to make sure the services offered meet its standards. That the carrier shifted suppliers on for inflight WiFi on the 787-9 fleet to Inmarsat’s GX Aviation hardware on board is perhaps even more notable.
Live television is now flying on Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA) under a two month trial with Panasonic Avionics. The service launched on the carrier’s A321LR earlier this month.
Better meals. Better entertainment. And the same comfortable legroom you’ve come to appreciate. That is the pitch JetBlue is making to economy class passengers as it offers further details about the cabin configuration on its A321LR fleet and plans for London flights later this year.
Looking for more live streaming video content in the skies? FuboTV offers more than 100 channels on its platform and they soon could be available on board aircraft equipped with the Viasat inflight wifi connectivity system.
