American Airlines adding Apple TV+ shows to in-flight entertainment systems
American Airlines is adding Apple TV+ originals “The Morning Show,” “Dickinson,” and “Defending Jacob” to its in-flight entertainment systems, offering free access to some of the service’s biggest titles.
According to The Points Guy, the shows will be available to every flyer with a Wi-Fi capable device on flights that feature internet access. Flyers won’t need to pay for in-flight WiFi to stream the shows, but will need the AA app on their phone or tablet.
The availability of Apple TV+ originals in-flight follows after Apple announced a partnership with the airline last year that saw Apple Music subscribers traveling on any American Airlines flight in the United States able to stream music without needing to pay for WiFi.
A spokesperson for the airline said shows will alternate each month.
