Lufthansa Will Trial Providing A Quest 3 To Business Class Passengers This Summer

Lufthansa and Meta announced they will provide a Quest 3 headset to business class passengers on some flights starting in summer.

Described as a “pilot program (pun intended)”, the scheme will see customers on “selected flights” in Lufthansa’s new “Allegris” Business Class this summer offered a Quest 3 headset with a streamlined launcher preloaded with certain apps.

The specific apps haven’t been detailed yet, but here’s what Meta says they’ll offer:

• Enjoy an immersive cinema experience with select movies and TV shows

• Listen to prominent travel podcasters and see their stories come to life through spatial videos and select 360-degree video content

• Discover travel destinations from a bird’s-eye view with virtual sightseeing previews before you arrive

• Play interactive games like Connect Four and Chess

• Relax with active meditation exercises or enjoy a passive, lean-back experience

Quest 2 & Quest 3 Get Travel Mode For Use On Airplanes
Quest 2 and Quest 3 now have an “experimental” Travel Mode to make their positional tracking work on airplanes.

The announcement comes alongside Meta shipping the currently-experimental Travel Mode for Quest 2 and Quest 3, which makes their positional tracking work on airplanes.
