We recently had a trip from Dubai to Bali via Emirates airlines and I was amazed by the plane’s in-flight entertainment called ICE. ICE stands for Information, Communication, Entertainment. This is an award-winning media system that keeps passengers busy during the flight through news, movies, tv shows, music and podcasts, games, etc. You will never get bored during the flight because of the wide collection offerings that are regularly updated.

Award Winning ICE System: Information, Communication Entertainment
It was a long 10-hour flight in Economy seats. I brought my laptop just so I could start blogging offline and get some work done. But upon checking the in-flight entertainment system of the plane, I was amazed by its features and specifications. The size of the screen is 13.3 inches and there are plenty of options for you to choose from. This is great news for the traveller who thinks he’ll get bored in the plane, because you surely won’t.
In a brief overview, here’s what you can expect from each of the features of ICE.
- Information: You can check the status of the flight and get a live view of the outside from the airplane’s external cameras.
- Communication: You can send emails, text messages, or even make phone calls while in the air!
- Entertainment: You can browse through thousands of movies, shows, music albums, etc. from different themes and genres.

With the Emirates Inflight Entertainment, you can also charge your phone and other devices via charging outlets, right on the seat itself. The 10-hour flight didn’t seem long at all, I got to watch a full season (16 episodes) of The Walking Dead, and a high-definition quality of the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. It was such a blast!
Here are some photos on what you can expect from this amazing in-flight experience. Take note that this is in the Economy class. Business Class and First Class, for sure have bigger screens.

Aside from the photos, here’s a short video review of the ICE system and what you can expect from it. Pardon the unprofessional editing, I’m not good at editing videos. 🙂
Flying with Emirates has never been this cool with the amazing facilities provided to their passengers. I look forward to flying more with this airline. I won’t have to worry about getting bored in the flight because of how awesome the experience is.
