On a plane trip from Raleigh to London it became abundantly clear that all of the electronics installed, including private movie screens on every seat back, music channels, and headsets were a way of "medicating" passengers. The plane's aisles had been designed so that no one could move about easily.
Instead, people were induced to stay in their seats, sit, eat, and not circulate. I guess the airline determined that most passengers would gladly accept electronic medication if it would make the time in the sky seemingly go faster.
