Passengers flying on AirAsia X (flight code D7) can now hire an Xcite Inflight Entertainment tab – a Huawei Mediapad 2 that comes with a 10.1-inch full high-definition widescreen display and Harman Kardon audio technology, plus headset.

The Inflight Entertainment tab offers a wide range of content, a high-resolution touch screen device and advanced audio technology.

It’s not available on flights to or from New Zealand, however. The airline notes that the Xcite Inflight Entertainment option will not be available for flights to/from Auckland, Jeddah and Kathmandu. For most Australian travellers, Auckland is the most relevant of those three destinations.
