"Our customers were the first in the world to experience… Wi-Fi entertainment technology and we received great feedback from our customers during the trial this year,” Lyell Strambi, CEO of Qantas domestic, said in a statement.
"We’re now looking at ways to evolve [QStreaming] technology platform even further with our partner Panasonic to bring new standards of in-flight entertainment to our customers."
