You're on a cross-country flight and pining for mindless entertainment. The seat-back TV has a fair to middling selection of rom-coms, Adam Sandler flicks and CBS sitcoms you forgot about, but what you really want is to re-binge the first season of Stranger Things

Soon, if Netflix has its way, you'll be able to. 

Per Variety, the streaming service just announced an expansion of its bandwidth-efficient technology to airline carriers around the world. Netflix already has deals with Virgin America, Aeromexico, Qantas and Virgin Australia, but is hoping to partner with even more to offer low-cost or free Wi-Fi entertainment to all passengers.

If all goes well, passengers will be able to access movies and shows from their own Netflix accounts, while non-members can sign up on-board for 30-day free trial. 

Netflix gets more members and we get access to the entire OITNB canon while hurtling through the sky? Total win-win.
