Did you download these movies to your ipad prior to take off? The movie files must be on the iPad to view them, otherwise you need a wi-fi connection to download them.'09 Mac mini, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iOS (5.0.1) Mac fanboi since 1984!

Yes I downloaded prior to take off. I even watched the rental a few seconds before I needed to power off my iPad during take off. Once in the air, I could not access. Maybe I should have watched the rental more than a few seconds?

I keep experiencing the same problem. I have iPad 1 wifi only. I download rentals fully at home and then check they show as downloaded in 'video.' But then when I try to watch on the plane (or anywhere without wifi) I will not start.

If you rent a movie from I tunes, you have 28 days to watch it. But once you start, you have 1 day to finish. Do I have this right? So if you watched a few minutes, but waited more than a day to really watch it, you are out of luck.

I don't think that he waited a day. From the wording, I concluded that he waited only minutes (during take-off).
I recall seeing this issue before. Apparently there is an issue related to copyright protection with some movies. I stopped flying when I retired so I didn't pay too much attention to the problem. Perhaps a search of the forum will shed more light.
