Airline adds iPads and saves fuel

A new airline service called Scoot based in Singapore, aimed at budget long-haul travelers has found a way to help make customers more happy and cut fuel costs as well. The company pulled entertainment system out of its aircraft, which weighed over two tons, to reduce weight and save fuel.

Since the company had also increased the number of seats inside the aircraft to keep the passengers happy, it's replacing those in-flight entertainment systems with the Apple iPad. The airline will rent iPads for $17 per trip and they are loaded with movies, music, games, and TV shows. It, sucks that you have to pay for entertainment, but when you go for a budget flight I guess you get what you pay for.
