British Airlines Will Now Leave In-Flight Entertainment System on During Takeoff

Starting this coming Saturday, British Airlines will allow their passengers to use the in-flight entertainment during takeoff and landing.  The airline made an agreement with the Civil Aviation Authority that allows passengers to use in-flight entertainment from the moment they get into their seats until the moment they leave their seats.  The current regulations require passengers to wait 30 minutes after takeoff to turn on in-flight entertainment and to shut it off 20 minutes prior to landing.


The airline says this will give passengers an extra hour of viewing time and at any time the pilot will be able to override the entertainment system in order to make announcements.  The new regulations only apply to the newer aircraft used by British Airlines, those aircraft that offer the new seat-back in-flight entertainment systems.  In addition, the rules have not changed for passengers with portable mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones.
