Airlines who buy Airbus's revamped version of its A330 jet will be able to offer passengers 3D movies starting in late 2017 when the first of the airplanes are delivered.

The ability to play 3D movies on new seatback screens will be part of the A330 Neo's newin-flight entertainment system that Airbus will install on the jets, making airplanes one of the last remaining holdouts for 3D programming.

The A330 Neo will also feature improved HD video capabilities, faster Wi-Fi and other forms of mobile connectivity through its fourth-generation in-flight entertainment system; full-LED mood lighting; wider seats; and better fuel consumption due to new engines and aerodynamics.

The A330 is Airbus's most popular wide-body plane, in terms of sales, and competes with Boeing's new Dreamliner.

There's no word yet on whether you'll need to wear 3D glasses to watch the movies or if Airbus will install new screens that don't require the extra headwear.
