Jetstar to Offer In-Flight iPad Rentals

Australian airline Jetstar's in-flight entertainment is about to get a whole lot more, well, entertaining. No, they're not hiring dancing girls to boogie down the isles, but the airline from down under will start renting out iPads on some of its domestic flights.

It will cost $10 to rent an iPad, which will provide some additional in-flight services, such as movies, TV programs, ebooks, music, and games, Jetstar announced.

"Based on demand for the iPads as part of the trial, we'll be looking to roll out the devices across our entire domestic and international network later in the year," said Jetstar CEO Bruce Buchanan.

We could see this being a big hit with passengers, especially at the $10 price point. Although much of the iPad experience is about the apps, and the ones that come pre-loaded on the rentals will make or break how successful the trial ends up being.
