Ailing Air India working on Lufthansa-style makeover for its in-flight entertainment

New Delhi: Looking to plug losses after a failed bid to privatise the national carrier, the central government is working on improving Air India’s in-flight entertainment system, on the lines of Europe’s largest airline Lufthansa.

The government is also contemplating making the debt-ridden airline a private limited company.

The carrier has proposed to introduce iPads to passengers in business and first class on international flights which would be pre-loaded with feature films and documentaries, including educational and commercial fare as well children’s films. As of now, it is set to procure 150 iPads.

The move comes after repeated complaints over malfunctioning of the airline’s existing old, worn out in-flight systems.
