JAKARTA, Jan 11 (AFP): Indonesian national flag carrier Garuda is bringing music to the skies with a series of live acoustic concerts on domestic flights, the airline said.
Passengers will be serenaded at 35,000 feet in a scheme aimed at wooing millennials "who want a different flight experience", airline spokesman M. Ikhsan Rosan told the news agency.
The carrier held its first in-flight concert on Wednesday, when two musicians performed for a captive audience aboard a flight between the capital, Jakarta, and the holiday island of Bali.
Garuda said sets would last 10 to 15 minutes on select flights, and there would be a focus on promoting upcoming talent.
While it may prove an unforgettable flying experience for some, it may not be everyone's idea of a good time. In 2017, US airline Southwest introduced live shows on some flights to a mixed reaction from passengers.
Some travellers said they preferred minimum human interaction while flying and said music would distract them from sleeping or reading.
