In addition to this, Emirates marks 30 years of best-in-skies entertainment and connectivity.
Patrick Brannelly, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Retail, IFE & Connectivity, stated, “When Emirates introduced personal screens on every seatback in 1992, it was considered a massive industry innovation. Other airlines questioned the sense of this huge investment, estimated at about US$15,000 per seat at that time.”
“But we quickly realized that our customers loved being entertained throughout the flight. It made their journeys feel shorter and fostered customer satisfaction and loyalty. Within a year, we were working on expanding the content choice to 20 channels on Emirates’ Boeing 777s, which were to join our fleet in 1996.”
