At this point it’s pretty clear that airlines love the iPad. We’ve seen a couple different carriers here and there load them up, as it’s a quick and easy way to install plenty of in-flight entertainment without sending an airplane into the hangar for a refreshment and refurbishment. Now Air Nigeria is doing the same, and they seem to be one the first to utilize the iPad 3—we mean the new iPad.

IFE Services is the company behind the tablet distribution, as they’ve been selected to partner with Air Nigeria as the new in-flight entertainment provider. Right now it sounds like the touch screen fun is coming to just the airline’s Airbus A330 fleet, and passengers situated up in business class will be the ones handling the brand new Apple drives.

New Routes Do Their Thing from Lufthansa, American Airlines and More

April 20, 2012 at 9:19 AM | by | ()

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· American Airlines:
It might not have the hipster and cool kid appeal of Portland, but up in the Pacific Northwest Seattle has being doing cool before it was trendy to be cool. American Airlines might be a little late to the party, but they’re planning to head all the way over to Seattle from Miami beginning this June.

Some Boeing 757s will be doing the back and forth work on this new option, and things officially kick off on June 14. The airline promises that they’re hard at work upgrading and improving all of their 757s, but you might not be lucky enough to get a refreshed plane—the goal is to finish in 2015. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like American Airlines is keen on giving any discounts for this new option, but if money is tight maybe you can finally cash in some of those AAdvantage miles.

· Air Nigeria:
London can never have too many options, or at least that’s the thinking over at Air Nigeria. The plan is to start a couple new options, and one of these will be a nonstop flight between London-Gatwick and Lagos, Nigeria beginning on May 16.

The next day the carrier will be getting ready for another new flight, as they’re also looking to connect their home base with Johannesburg, South Africa. The plan is to utilize some Airbus A330s to get back and forth between these new destinations, so you can expect the chance to score a seat in either business class or economy class.
