Could Qantas be diligently keeping track of the movie selections with the prospect of one day charging for IFE, or is it looking to make up for the fact that there’s no longer Internet on international flights?
Qantas has given customers more power over their inflight entertainment by letting them rate the films they watch on board.
The ratings system provides anonymous, daily statistics from both domestic and international aircraft, a Qantas spokesperson said. It allows the Qantas’ entertainment programmers to track all movies, TV programs and even CDs for popularity.
