British Airways bring on the cats and dogs
Looking at cats while on a flight news now, and British Airways have introduced Slow TV.
The in-flight entertainment has had a bit of an overhaul, and will now offer such channels as Paws & Relax, which is basically footage of cats and dogs being lovely.
There's also a film of a seven hour Norwegian train journey, which sounds both amazing and like someone's possibly been at the biscuits and dug out their Orb albums over at BA.
All of the vibes. Right there.
Paws and Relax's shows include cartoon 'Simon's Cat', 'America's Cutest Dog' and the BBC's 'Secret Life of Cats', and there will also be a showcase for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, where no doubt emotional fliers can see if they want to adopt a poodle mid-flight.
In-flight entertainment manager of British Airways Richard D’Cruze, said relaxing TV clips help enhance passenger’s trips.
“We discovered some scientific research that proves watching images of cute animals can actually lower your heart rate and reduces stress levels."
