Certification process for the hardware of kiwix might be a tremendous pain
in the ass.
And second point the airline will need a business case to cary more weight
(count about 3.5% of the weight as extra fuel burn per hour).
That said I'd love to use Wikipedia on an IFE.

during long flights, I have often been wondering why there is no
Wikimedia option in in-flight entertainment systems. As I am normally
offline during flights and I normally don't think about in-flight
stuff while on the ground, I never actually asked around, so after a
long flight yesterday, here we go:
Do any of you know of attempts to explore the option(s) to get
Wikimedia content onto in-flight entertainment and similar systems?
Many of them already have educational content, but I am not aware of
anything openly licensed amidst those offerings. Have any of the Kiwix
team looked into this?
Also, many airlines/ ships/ trains and others offer WiFi for a fee -
has the Wikipedia Zero team ever looked into engaging with such
Thanks and cheers,
