Black Panther: Plane passengers’ favourite film

Black Panther was the most popular film among air passengers last year, a new survey has revealed.

According to new figures released by Emirates, the Marvel blockbuster was the top onboard movie in 2018.

The film fought off competition from over 1000 other movies featured on the airline’s entertainment system.

In a recent poll of 1,000 people in Ireland, an Emirates Ireland Travel Survey also uncovered passengers travelling habits, with 28% of people liking to fly in daylight but 14% prefer taking a flight when it’s dark.

Almost half (49%) of passengers like to sit by the window, while 31% always opt for an aisle seat.

Nearly a third (30%) of those polled said that they could not resist checking work emails when they were away on holiday and 45% reported that they are contacted
by work when on holiday.

Meanwhile, when comes to winter holidays, 41% of people in Ireland would opt for a sun holiday over a ski trip or city break.

Emirates also revealed that last year, they carried more than 442,000 customers between Dublin and Dubai, an increase of 2% on 2017.
