Planes to Use Apple iPods - New York Times

Airline passengers will soon be able to connect their iPods to in-flight entertainment systems and watch their favorite videos while traveling on any of six major carriers, the iPod maker Apple Computer said yesterday.

Air France, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, KLM and the United Airlines unit of the UAL Corporation will begin offering passengers iPod seat connections, which power and charge iPods during flight and allow video on the devices to be viewed on seat-back displays.

The service will begin in the middle of next year. Other terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Apple said it was working on introducing the iPod service on other airlines.

To date, Apple has sold nearly 70 million iPods and more than 1.5 billion songs through its iTunes music store. It has also made popular TV shows and movies available for purchase and download through its Internet store.
