United Airlines Becomes iPhone Friendly

In a move to retain customers, United Airlines has announced a new service on their international flights that enable passengers to use and charge their iPods and iPhones.

Not only will passengers be able to charge them up during the flight, the docks for the devices will enable passengers to watch their own videos and listen to their music, all using the viewing station on the back of every seat.

The maiden voyage of the iPod and iPhone connectibility took off this morning, but it will take up to two years before each international plane’s first class and business class sections will come equipped with the technology.

iPhone connectibility for United

We’re hoping more airlines, will begin using these accomodations. While the fees and fares go up, it would be nice to have some sort of additional incentive to fly nowadays.
