Your Thoughts On EK's IFE?

My experience has been good with them over the Tasman but when it came to IFE, I was really disappointed, barely any new movies and mostly all movies had to be Arabic and Bollywood for god's sake.

On the plus side I love the size of the monitor in J (I'm always on the 77W), however I have to agree that I mostly find the recent content disappointing.  I'm probably not a representation of their primary customer, when I fly I prefer to watch something in the "newer release" category then a culturally diverse piece.  I appreciate they will have a larger, more locally focused content, but with the way they market the volume of content, I expect to find more.  I'm find myself watching TV shows (or my iPad) more often.

My main issue is that they censor the moviess more than, say, Qantas does. It's very noticeable and annoying.

I'm not a fan of EK content precisely because of that. But I don't necessarily blame them; current offerings from Hollywood leaves much to be desired. Which is the other thing that gets my goat: why is inflight entertainment perceived only to be good when current blockbusters are being shown? The airline that is able to offer a library of excellent films from the past gets my vote. On a recent AA flight, films like Steel Magnolias (original version), Dangerous Liaison, How to marry a millionaire, Hidden Dragon Crouching Tiger and Sense & Sensibility to name a few, were being shown. New is not necessarily better!
