DOHA, Qatar: Qatar Airways has announced an exciting schedule of five-star inflight entertainment for its passengers onboard its flights during February 2015 to celebrate The Oscars, which takes place in Los Angeles on Sunday 22 February.
This year’s Oscar nominees Gone Girl, Whiplash and Nightcrawler will all make their debut on board Qatar Airways’ Oryx inflight entertainment system, which is updated every month to give passengers a wide range of the latest movies, music and TV programmes to enjoy during their journey. Big Hero 6 and The Boxtrolls, both nominated for Best Animated Feature at this year’s Oscars, will also be available to keep younger passengers entertained.
A hand-picked collection of previous Oscar greats has also been carefully chosen to provide passengers with the ultimate selection of all-time movie classics for their enjoyment. From favourites such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Rocky and Annie Hall to The Departed, The Artist and The King’s Speech, there is something for everyone to settle back and enjoy while they experience Qatar Airways’ five-star service on board.
February’s line up of world entertainment also includes the Bollywood hit Mary Kom starring Priyanka Chopra. Qatar Airways will be the first and only Middle East airline to exclusively feature this biopic, which tells the story of the five-time world champion, Asian gold medallist Indian woman boxer.
The Arabic TV content for February has also been updated to include the first 15 episodes of Ekhwat Al Damm, the Bedouin drama series that aired during Ramadan 2014.
