I was the first few people to experience JetScreen, Jet Airways’ entertainment app for in-flight wireless streaming entertainment system on the Delhi – Pune flight (economy class).
JetScreen was first introduced for International sectors but now Jet Airways is also offering it on select domestic flights depending on the aircraft being used.
Pre Flight Communication
I received an emailer and a SMS, couple of days prior to boarding the flight about JetScreen and how I could stream it on my phone, tablet or any other wifi compatible device.
I downloaded the Airtime Player app as the official Jet Screen streaming app on my phone curious to try out JetScreen on it without any hassles.
JetScreen Streaming – On the flight
Aboard the Jet Airways flight, there were screens behind each seat announcing Jet Screen and seemed to look and feel like any other onboard entertainment system should look like but the Jet Screen entertainment offerings did not work on the in built screen.
Having downloaded the Airtime Player App, I tried connecting JetScreen to my phone by following the simple steps below:
- Put your phone on Airplane mode.
- Enable wifi on your phone.
- Connect to ‘Jet Screen’ wifi from the available options.
- Launch jetscreen.jetairways.com in the web browser or open the Airtime player app and enjoy!
Jet Screen streaming app: I used the Airtime Player app to seamlessly connect to Jet Screen. The passenger next to me was having some trouble connecting via jetscreen.jetairways.com. So I would recommend downloading the Airtime Player app prior to your Jet Screen flight.
Jet Screen has a good collection of movies and other entertainment options that can keep you entertained throughout your flight. If you’re one of those who would like to catch up on the recently acclaimed movies, Jet Screen might just be your savior.
The only thing I found missing were the headphones or earphones. A flight offering in-flight entertainment should also offer earphones to enjoy it. Nowhere was it mentioned in the pre flight communication, to get your own and not everyone keeps it with them. So that was a bummer.
