Inflight entertainment options have come a long way in recent years. The increasing availability of Wi-Fi and seatback entertainment options means airline passengers are rarely bored. While in-flight connectivity is becoming more common, only one US airline offers free in-flight Wi-Fi to all passengers. And as if that wasn’t enough, they just announced more passenger entertainment benefits.

In addition to free Wi-Fi, the New York-based airline offers free snacks and drinks, screens on all seatbacks, and the widest seat width and generous legroom in the industry.

They are the only carrier in the US that offers such a comprehensive service.
