Jetstar Airways bringing iPad rentals to friendly skies

iPads have become something of an interest to airlines, and Australia's Jetstar Airways is no exception.

It's always refreshing to see airlines step up their tech offerings, whether it be Wi-Fi access or more satellite TV channels. iPads have become something of an interest to airlines, and Jetstar Airways is no exception.

The Australian carrier has actually been working on this as a trial program since last summer, and iPad rentals were only $10 per flight.

The full-fledged iPad rental service will commence this April on A320 aircrafts operating in Australia and Asia. Each slate will come pre-loaded with movies, music, games, magazines and books. Hopefully that $10 rental price sticks, and it would be very nice if some airlines would follow suit stateside. (My money would be on Virgin America if any carrier was going to start something like that in the United States.)
