Nearly half of British travellers say gadgets are essential on a flight, according to a recent poll by

Forty-eight per cent of holidaymakers told the add-ons provider that they can’t survive a flight without a Kindle, iPad, mp3 player, Nintendo DS, laptop or DVD player. A further third (33 per cent) wouldn’t hop on board without a book or magazine.

Men, perhaps surprisingly, are happier than women to relax and chat on a plane without the need for entertainment, at 23 per cent compared to just 15 per cent of women (19 per cent overall).

The survey also reveals that over a third of travellers (34 per cent) want to see inflight films as standard on short-haul flights, along with cartoons for children (10 per cent) and music videos (6 per cent).
