The Skylights Theatre headsets are being trialed in the Business Class lounge in Concourse B during April, and in the First Class lounge in concourse B throughout May.
Offering a fixed screen with a wide-angle field of view for 3D and 2D content, each Skylight theatre headset weighs only 120g (0.26 lb) and offers a full high-definition viewing experience. A mixture of content will be available including 3D and 2D movies, box sets, documentaries and 360º videos.
