3D at 30,000ft

Is there possibility for the future?

Despite the apparent enthusiasm for 3D IFE, no airline has claimed the milestone of being the first to offer in-flight movies in 3D.

This may be down to functional hurdles involved in bringing 3D technology onboard, starting with the increased hardware costs required to retrofit aircraft with new screens. In addition to the initial hardware investment, the required screen size and distance from the screen makes 3D a great challenge outside of first and business class.
