Hi guys,

I'm flying quite often Easyjet but never had a chance to try their wireless IFE "Airtime". Does anyone here already tried it?

I always assumed they scrapped it, I’m normally flying them 2/3 times a month the last couple of years and I’ve never heard announcements for it or seen it mentioned in their Traveller magazine.

They planned and announced it, but never actually introduced it. It was blown off before they got there.

Not entirely sure about the reasons it was blown off, but I can imagine it was because they didn't make money on it. In fact, on-board sales would be down because people would be too occupied in their in-flight entertainment and thus not paying attention to the flight attendants coming by for the buy-on-board program.

Let's not forget that EasyJet is an LCC and that doesn't go well with in-flight entertainment. Most LCCs don't offer it unless it is to promote their sales.
