The Australian airline Qantas already provides an iPhone app for frequent flyers. Now the company is taking things further by offering all passengers in-flight entertainment on the iPad. A new app called QStreaming will launch initially on board the B767 fleet, along with iPads for each passenger to use while in the air.
Qantas plans to equip all of its planes with iPads not only for passengers, but for pilots as well. The FAA recently approved the use of iPads in the cockpit to replace bulky paper maps. The company also announced it will be ditching BlackBerry for the iPhone, moving all of its mobile devices to Apple iOS.
