Whether you’re in for a long flight, or a short domestic one, in-flight entertainment can really make a great trip. Not all airlines treat in-flight entertainment the same way, and if you’re on a flight that leaves little in the entertainment realm, you can always stock up your iPad with a few favorite shows or movies and create your own. With our Fast Pass luggage options like the Lance Executive Daypack or the Trident Messenger bag, bringing your own electronics on board and creating your own in-flight entertainment has never been easier.
