Airline Considering In-flight Games, Movies... and Porn

By - Source: The Sun | B 54 comments

Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary is contemplating the development of apps that would allow passengers to play games, watch movies, gamble or even watch porn while they fly.

Speaking to the Sun newspaper, O'Leary, who is known for suggesting whacky ways to make money from his airline, said that he hopes to launch an in-flight web service that mimics the pay-TV services offered in hotels. O'Leary specified that customers would be using their own mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, for viewing or engaging with these services, which would offer views movies, games, gambling apps and even porn.

"I'm not talking about having it on screens on the back of seats for everyone to see. It would be on handheld devices," he said. "Hotels around the world have it, so why wouldn't we?"

The plan could take more than a year to get off the ground because of the costs associated with getting its planes broadband-ready. However, this is not the first time the topic of porn on planes has come up. Back in 2008, flight attendants voiced their concerns over the growing trend of in-flight WiFi. The worry was that with internet access, passengers might watch adult content to pass the time while they fly. That said, considering the fact that people can bring their phones, laptops, MP3 players and as many books and magazines as they like on board, it seems silly to think anyone desperate enough to want to look at porn during their flight would use the in-flight WiFi to do so. They could just as easily bring a DVD and laptop on board and watch for free.

    Porn should totally have a secluded section. I don't want the dude next to me watching porn, while little Billy is sitting next to him wondering why Mario is giving it to Princess Peach.

    3-4 ft is A LOT. I'm not sure what he means, but it's probably not ft. 3-4 would make them cut out like 10 rows - that, or some people would have to start riding on the ceiling. Ha.

    well if airlines provide more legroom, i'd prefer to take a restful nap to recharge after going through all the airport hassles. but if everyone is bringing his own media device and playing them out loud without headphones, the noise would be rather distracting if not outright annoying.

    Considering what hands will be doing, I'm not touching one that's been used before.
