Both American Airlines and Singapore Airlines have cameras installed in their seatback entertainment, according to Associated Press.
The cameras are also reported to become a standard feature in the seatback entertainment of other airlines in the future. Both American and Singapore Airlines claim that they have not turned on the cameras and don’t plan on doing so for a while.
When asked why the cameras were installed in the seatbacks of the airline, a representative for the American Airlines stated that it was initially installed for seat-to-seat conferences. One passenger took a picture of the camera and tweeted about it to others. The tweet received millions of shares and comments from those who questioned the reason for cameras on airlines.
