Emirates Airlines introduces 100 new films to the inflight entertainment
Always spoilt for choice…
In celebration of Warner Brothers celebrating its 100th birthday, Emirate Airlines has partnered with the mega movie house to add 100 new films to their ICE inflight entertainment system. The capsule collection will feature classic films and documentaries that we all know and love.
The new films will be rolled out across Emirates flights from September 1, 2023, so if you have any travel plans, you’ll want to get your film-watching schedule sorted before the flight.
Through the ages
The collection of films will come as an addition to the already pretty extensive list of flicks for you to catch while you wait for the flight to end. The film collection will include films from throughout Warner Brothers’ time as an entertainment studio.
You can catch classics including films from as early as the 1930s that have been remastered for your viewing pleasure such as The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Gone with the Wind (1939) all the way through some of the latest releases including Dune (2021) and Elvis (2022)
