Since I don't have either MP-3 player or a Windows computer, I'd suggest that you contact the manufacturer with your question. http://global.Bose.com
I haven't taken any flights since I've purchased these headphones, although I believe they would likely work. (Another question for the manufacturer.)
However, I can say that these headphones are superior to several styles I've purchased over the past few years. The superior sound quality of Bose is demonstrated with these headphones.
