United Airlines to Offer iPod and iPhone Connectivity

United announced today that they have started deploying iPod and iPhone connectivity as part of its in flight entertainment system for certain flights and passengers.

United is the first U.S. carrier to offer iPod and iPhone connectivity to its in-flight entertainment system, enabling customers to enjoy their individual content on a 15.4-inch personal television, all while the iPod or iPhone charges.


Over the next two years, United plans on reconfiguring its entire fleet of "international, widebody aircraft" to incorporate the iPod and iPhone connectivity.

The option will be limited to business class and first class customers only.
