The new service is being offered in all classes on flights between Sydney and Honolulu with more routes expected to be added soon. Along with the iPad, fliers are able to stream more than 200 hours of movies, TV shows, and music. These items come directly from the aircraft’s inflight entertainment technology, Q Streaming.
