Song’s expanded service will feature the wide array of on-board amenities that distinguish its brand from other low-cost air services. Song’s in-flight entertainment system is the most innovative of any low-fare service, offering personal seatback video monitors that provide: 24 channels of live DISH Network television free; 24 channels of free audio programming; free digitally-streamed MP3 programming that allows customers to create individual play lists of up to 32 songs at their seat (from an inventory of more than 1,600 songs); 10 movies available on-demand, allowing customers to start and stop the film at their leisure; 11 video games; and a popular interactive trivia game that allows passengers to compete against one another.

Song also offers a comprehensive onboard menu, featuring healthful, organic selections, including a Grilled Balsamic Chicken Breast with Curried Couscous Special, as well as a few indulgences, including Song margaritas. Song also introduced an In-Flight Fitness program, developed exclusively for the low-fare service by fitness guru David Barton. The 15-minute workout is designed to help travelers stay fit while they are on the fly.
