Long flights can get boring, fast.
But if you fly with Emirates, you’ve got access to the world’s best in-flight entertainment system for the entirety of your trip.
So what’s their secret? ICE — but not the freezing kind.
Emirates’ “ICE” system (which stands for Information, Communication, Entertainment) allows passengers to keep up with the news, send emails, and browse over 1,800 channels of movies, games, and television throughout every flight.
The sheer number of features and options is what gives Emirates an edge over other airlines, AirlineRatings.com notes. Not only can customers access the latest movies and music, they can also track the progress of their flight, take in the view from the plane’s external cameras, make calls, and watch live TV.
Here’s the promo video Emirates’ uses to introduce ICE to its passengers:
