Alaskaair – watching movies on your phone

On flight AS 770, earlier today

I’ve enjoyed flying Alaska around the country in the past year. After a few flights, I pondered how to improve the trip and better enjoy movies on my phone, inspired by Alaska’s tablet and seat design.

Today, a flight attendant shared her appreciation for my simple solution, and this encourages me to share it here in the hope it might inspire others.

To watch movies, I bring a loop of 15 inches of elastic string to hang the phone from the magazine slot. The string is looped around the vertical magazine stay, can be used in any tray or seat position, and works with any phone.

The upcoming seat design will make this unnecessary. In the meantime, I share this to celebrate Alaska’s spirit of innovation.
