I'm a businessman & I travel a lot. During my flight, I used to listen to music or watch movies. I'd not mention movies here but the Entertainment system in most of Airlines are bad & not up-to-date.
Furthermore, all airlines need to pay for royalty in order to store & broadcast music in their planes.
So I always think of how Spotify setup a business relatioship with all the airlines. Spotify can build up a small media system in every airplanes. Then passengers can happily enjoy the music.
Some good features that Spotify can implement, together with Airlines team:
- Passengers who have membership with Airlines can register their Spotify user-id. When passengers buy tickets or check-in online, the music system can pre-load all of their playlist then they can enjoy during their trip.
- In same flight, passengers can share to as well as try other passengers playlists.
- Always have a pre-set free acct for those who never try Spotify yet.
If Spotify can work it out, I'm pretty sure that you'll see the booming in your number of users.
That idea can implement in other transportations like train, vessel, etc.
