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.
