Globehunters has announced Turkish Airlines, offering cheaper Wi-Fi, has edged out Emirates and American Airlines in a new ranking of in-flight entertainment, the company said.
Globehunters is an online travel agency, that conducted a survey of the world´s 20 biggest airlines and their economy-class entertainment options. It took into consideration things like Wi-Fi availability and price, seat-back screens, music streaming, live TV, in-flight movies, plugs, and the ability to stream media on personal devices. After pulling all the data, Globehunters determined that Turkish Airlines was the best at keeping its passengers entertained on long-haul flights.
Emirates and American Airlines tied for second place.
