iPods on Singapore Air

iPods and iPhones are now supported on some flights out of the US, Singapore Airlines has announced. The company says that beginning today, business-class, non-stop A345 flights from Newark to Singapore will offer special 30-to-9-pin adapter cables to go along with its KrisWorld in-flight entertainment technology. This will allow passengers to not only listen to music through KrisWorld, but watch video on a larger LCD, and power their players at the same time.

In case of announcements, KrisWorld will temporarily interrupt any audio; the airline is also disallowing any calls on an iPhone, requiring owners to switch to Airplane Mode. Some other companies have begun experimenting with in-flight cellular service.

Singapore Airlines says it hopes to eventually expand iPod and iPhone support to all business-class A340-500 flights out of New York and Los Angeles, with the latter starting in August.
