    Have just been looking through the “temporary inflight services,” and noticed it now says that entertainment including the entertainment app are available on selected flights. I haven’t heard anywhere of that. Can anyone confirm that it is available now?

    Inflight entertainment options on short-haul International flights

    On short-haul international flights in business class, what are the requirements for accessing the inflight entertainment system? Is it still only provided through the Virgin Entertainment app on your own device for which you need to use your own headset?

    Virgin Entertainment available on Alliance operated flights

    Haven’t seen anyone else comment. Was on an Alliance operated F100 for VA and they announced the VA entertainment was available via WiFi. Unsure how many aircraft have it, but definitely trying to keep the experience similar.

    Entertainment in overseas lounges

    Hi all. I fly between MEL and LAX fairly frequently and while trying to watch Warner get his double century I was told by the staff in the First Lounge (LAX) that they cant access the cricket. Qantas is an Australian airline. All they have is basketball and gridion on the TV in the LAX lounge...

    Dropping the better-half off at the airport for a Thursday night QF flight, wanted to check the movies (eg. I might want to watch something at home she’s watching in the air! :) ) ... and couldn’t find them. Have they stopped publishing it, or is it just impossible to find now? Are they...

    Why keep obsolete IFE boxes?

    On another QF 737 again the plane had been upgraded to Qantas entertainment but the old IFE boxes were still bolted on. The same seem to apply to their 330's with iPad's. Why would they still keep them as the seat back screens are long gone? Instead, the few extra centimetres of space for your...
