First Inflight Entertainment on a Turboprop?

ATR, Inflight Entertainment, Kingfisher

It looks like the time has come for inflight entertainment on turboprops. Thanks to the newly discovered In-flight Entertainment blog for pointing out the link to the press release that also had this picture.

Pretty nice looking for a turboprop, huh? Well, if you go to India, you’ll be able to fly this plane on Kingfisher Airlines. I am a little suspect on this press release’s claim that this is “the world’s first turboprop aircraft facilitating In-flight entertainment system” though.

I know there were plenty of piston engine props back in the day that had inflight entertainment onboard, so maybe by limiting this to turboprops, they can get away with this claim. Anyone know otherwise?
