In-flight entertainment (IFE) refers to the entertainment available to aircraft passengers during a flight. At first, IFE consisted of looking out the window. (Zeppelin sightseeing flights were available in Europe before the First World War. [1]) In 1936, the airship Hindenburg offered passengers a piano, lounge, dining room, smoking room, and bar during the 2-1/2 day flight between Europe and America. [2]) After the Second World War, IFE was delivered in the form of food and drink services, along with an occasional projector movie during lengthy flights.
