* Some seats have monitors stowed in the arm of their seat rather than the back of the seat in front of them. For safety reasons, these monitors must be stowed for taxi, take-off and landing. This means you can still listen to music during these times of the flights, but as your monitor needs to be stowed, you won't be able to watch a movie etc until crew advise your screen can be deployed.
** For passengers flying between New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands, Honolulu and Bali your entertainment options depend on the product purchased. Find out more.
