CP to offer arcade in the sky
Canadian Pacific Airlines is preparing to introduce computer generated electronic games throughout its aircraft fleet, and is one of the first airlines to offer this type of in-flight entertainment.
The airline's 737 aircraft will be the first to be outfitted as they presently don't provide any in-flight entertainment. The seat tray will become a playing board with a built-in computer on which is located a video type screen. A headset will provide the sound for the system. The rental fees are expected to be in the $3-5 range.
