iTunes in the air?
A recent poll found that over a third of airline passengers would download songs from the iTunes Music Store, were tracks available to consumers during flights. The poll was conducted in response to recent talks between Apple and in-flight entertainment providers, who considered licensing iTunes media download software in early April. Flightglobal.com found that 38 percent of flyers would download songs from iTunes during a flight, while 62 percent would not, according to a report from vnunet.com. A deal between in-flight entertainment providers and Apple could allow passengers to download videos and music to iPods while in the air, and several airlines have requested building iPod docks into seatbacks.
