Boeing

Boeing has chosen Android to power the in-flight entertainment system of its 787 Dreamliner aircraft. For other aircraft, airlines are able to choose their own entertainment contracts, but the 787 will feature a package deal to save costs.

The inflight entertainment system will feature music, videos and apps that will run on screens ranging from 7- 17 inches. This is a big win for Android as it will see further expansion on all airlines that will use the 787 Dreamliner. If you know much about the 787, it has continuously been delayed. However, there is much anticipation for it and once it starts flying, it will likely be an incredibly popular aircraft due to its fuel efficiency. No word yet on when exactly we'll see Android inside, but it's an exciting prospect for the future.
