iPhone connectivity comes to economy with new Singapore Airbus

Singapore Airlines offers Aussie economy class travellers first dibs at iPhone/iPod connectivity

Australian economy class travellers will be the first to benefit from iPod and iPhone connectivity on Singapore Airlines’ newly delivered A330-300 aeroplane.

The aeroplane rolled out of Airbus’ Toulouse, France assembly plant earlier this week. It will enter commercial service on the Brisbane to Singapore route on March 30, before being phased in to Perth and Adelaide routes in April and June respectively, the company said.

iPod and iPhone access debuted on the airline’s all-business class A340-500 aircraft last year.

The access is part of the airlines souped up inflight entertainment system. On top of iPod and iPhone connectivity, there is a USB port for listening to music or viewing various files as well as an audio-video input to plug portable media players to watch personal movies or programs.

Singapore Airlines’ all-business class A340-500 does not fly to Australia. It flys between Singapore and Newark and Singapore and Los Angeles.

The A330-300 can seat 285 passengers and fly 4720 nautical miles.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
