Mexican airline renting iPods

Low-cost Mexcian airline Volaris this month began handing out iPods to passengers in a test run, and will soon start charging 50 pesos (about $5) per flight. Volaris currently offers 30GB fifth-generation iPods filled with Mexican TV shows and popular music, but the airline plans to also load U.S.

sitcoms and other music genres. “We’re the first to use iPod’s.

We like it because no one else has it,” said public relations officer Alfonso Collantes. “We just went out and bought a bunch of iPods and started giving them out to passengers.” U.S giants Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines announced last year that they planned to add iPod connectivity into seat-back video screens.
