 The Art of Selection--In-Flight Movies
In 1997, the number one in-flight movie was the romantic drama "One Fine Day" with Michelle Pfieffer and George Clooney, followed by the romantic comedy "Jerry Maguire" with Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding, Jr.
It's unclear just how good in-flight entertainment is for the movie industry.
While the airlines today would say that in-flight entertainment isn't much of an incentive to convince customers to buy a ticket on a particular airline, there was a time when airline entertainment was as exciting as the flight itself.

 Dean's Benchtop: IFM Rocket
in-flight movie 1 (1326 KB) in-flight movie 2 (662)
Using flight data, I estimate the coefficient of drag for the rocket to be 0.18 based on the area of the widest part of the soda bottle.
Therefore, the movies don't show the fact that the rocket typically bounces about 3 m high, rotates in the air, and comes in for a second nose-first impact.

 In-Flight Entertainment
It did not take long for entrepreneurs to seize on the idea of in-flight movies and later on radio and television broadcasts to entertain the passengers.
in-flight entertainment for passenger enjoyment was not the prime motivation of the earliest air-borne presentations.
As a matter of record, the term "in-flight media event" is a much more accurate label to describe the purpose of the first onboard entertainment efforts.

 Business Wire: Dolby Laboratories Expands In-Flight Entertainment Program, Broadening Access to Dolby Headphone Technology
In-flight movies are specially pre-encoded with the Dolby Headphone process, which eliminates the need to add playback processors to the in-flight entertainment systems.
Dolby Headphone technology lets passengers enjoy in-flight movies and music with the same premium surround sound experience they have come to expect from a 5.1-channel home theater.
As a result of this improved spatiality and directionality, Dolby Headphone processing enhances movie soundtracks, making it easier to hear dialogue, music, and special effects in their proper perspective.

 Guardian Unlimited Travel News Safety fears over in-flight movies as pilots report electrical fires
It's as much a part of the flying experience as take-off and landing, but the in-flight movie - popular with the public and a selling point for airlines - is now, say some experts, a safety hazard.
Safety fears over in-flight movies as pilots report electrical fires
More than one-third of the world's planes carry in-flight movie systems - many of them fitted into older aircraft.

 Great Flying Movies
Strange and a tad twisted, this movie was perhaps the pinnacle representation of cold-war nuclear paranoia.
Unlike such memorable flying scenes from other movies (like the BD-5J flying through the hangar, the missile-equipped gyrocopter, the helicopter flying through the warehouse or even the midair fight on the C-130s cargo ramp), this movie was not exciting, just a lame excuse for wasting acetate.
This was a pretty hokey 80's action movie, kinda-sorta like a futuristic spaghetti western in the air, but it did feature a lot of interesting and unusual airplanes, including the Edgley Optica ducted-fan observation plane.

 X-31 in flight - Mongoose Maneuver
The ARPA had requested flight research for the X-31 aircraft be moved there in February 1992.
NASA was responsible for flight research operations, aircraft maintenance, and research engineering once the program moved to Dryden.
The program had its first flight on October 11, 1990, in Palmdale; it ended in June 1995.

 I can honestly say that the recent cuts in in-flight service ...
One of the things the flight attendants appreciate about the in-flight movies is that it keeps passengers occupied in their seats and out of the galley’s while they do their service.
No food, combined with the decision to remove in-flight movies and audio entertainment starting in January 2002, is another bad idea.
Cutting meal service on flights to Las Vegas, Phoenix and Denver and replacing it with “The Brick” or leftover “Metrofare” was a BAD idea.

However a simulated movie of how it might have looked has been created from a 3D model of the Flyer, with a cine-effects overlay used to age it.

 crocoPuffs: In Flight Movie
I once experienced really bad turbulence on a flight.
I don't know about you, but I will not be smiling when half my plane is missing and it's time to breathe through a cheap plastic cup.
So bad that some passengers were getting physically sick, and others were crying.

 "Finding Forrester" / a review from Christian Spotlight on the Movies
I saw this movie on an airplane so I can't comment on vulgarity, since in-flight movies are cleaned-up.
This was a very average movie, with a variation on a storyline that we have all seen before.
Few movies made even now mix blacks and whites together as equals, but this one shows that both races can have a true relationship.

 CLAL on Culture: The In-Flight Holocaust Flick
Although I was convinced that it was inappropriate to show a Holocaust movie on a plane flight, a feeling began to grow in me that the decision to show the movie somehow created a duty for my fellow passengers to watch it.
The most stunningly inappropriate in-flight movie I think I have ever seen was Apollo 13, screened as we flew through very heavy turbulence on a stormy night over the Alps.
Should airlines show Holocaust movies as in-flight entertainment?

 Empire Online: Best and Worse In-Flight Movies?
I dont know, but I just remembered how rubbish the recent remake of the Stepford Wives was and how it in no way helped me through a boring flight but the crown for me goes to Snow Day with Chevy Chase, loved him in the 80s but this film was so dire and pants.
The only good film I saw on a flight was October Sky on the way to Florida.
I once sat through divine secrets of the ya ya sisterhood on a flight, needless to say it wasn't an experience i'd like to repeat.

 Halfbakery: In-flight Flight Simulator
And Dr. Curry, re your comment about in flight movies: I was once on a TransBrasil flight from São Paulo to Miami, on which the in-flight movie was "Forces of Nature," which begins with a plane crash.
But aside from that, just as airplane disaster movies are not shown as in-flight movies, I vote against this one.
It's a minor crash, to be sure, but I remember the movie precisely because it seemed to break the assumed rule you mention.

 In-flight movies a turn-off for Ryanair customers
BUDGET airline Ryanair confirmed today that it was axing its paid-for in-flight entertainment scheme and the company said it had ended the service of films and music for £5 per flight due to poor customer demand.
One industry analyst said he believed one of the problems of the scheme had been that flights were too short.
It warned at the end of January that the trial, which it launched in November, would end unless there was a significant improvement in customer take-up.

In-flight on-demand streaming movies - Engadget - www.engadget.com
The long-haul flight from London to Singapore with Singapore Airlines already offers a video-on-demand service in which you can choose from over 80 films (and hundreds of CDs) and play, pause, rewind and fast-forward to your heart's content, and this is in economy!
Not sure when or if this’ll ever become a reality, but regardless of whether they choose to connect that in-flight wireless network to the wider Internet or not (obviously you know what we’d prefer), something like this actually makes sense for older planes that don’t have video screens at every seat.

 J In-flight Entertainment
Movies in J (individual screen) are not edited for airline use at least on AC + Virgin.
And to add to that, the movies are butchered by the "edited for airline use" process.
On Virgin, the movie guide explicitly states that movies are entirely unedited.

While you're waiting for your flight to be called you may even be offered access to the airline's private lounge, where the seating is comfortable, the food is often free and there's an open bar.
Sure, you'll save money by booking Economy but if your flight is over two hours long, the comfort factor could end up being more important than the fare.
Well, first of all, the seats are wider and they recline further, which is a big plus on long flights.

 The Anniston Star - In-flight movies prompt lawsuit
A hearing-impaired teenager from Houston has taken on the airline business because the carriers don’t offer in-flight movies with captions.
A federal lawsuit was filed earlier this week on behalf of Sam Bynum, an 18-year-old high school senior who is severely hearing-impaired and relies upon captioning to watch TV and movies.
A spokeswoman at American Airlines said company policy prohibits officials from commenting on pending litigation.

 Microtune's RF Technology Will Enable Video and Data in Airline Entertainment Systems Are Autos Far Behind?
The tuner supports overhead, in-seat and/or flip-up video displays, enabling passengers to access, while on the ground or in flight, a range of services, from movies, on-demand video and gaming to maps and other applications.
In-flight entertainment systems, like those for in-car entertainment and telematics, merge advanced video and data functions with unique environmental requirements, placing severe technical demands on the tuner.
