Trying to figure out if my flight will have PTV or not. Since EI is having a somewhat gradual conversion of PTV on its A330s, I would like to know if my flight will PTV or not. Is there some website that will tell me the exact a/c i'll be flying in?

I'm not sure, but some members here can find that information. Firstly, though, you'll have to remember that there is no way of being 100% correct on what aircraft you'll be flying in on that exact day until you've actually flown it - mechanical problems do occur, and random aircraft switching do occur.

What is your flight number, your route, and when will you be flying?

Yup yup, I understand that nobody knows for sure. I'm not asking you to hack into EI's database or physically go to the airport, but you know, I'd settle for reasonable certainty  Smile I'm flying EI 118 on 6/24/09 and returning on EI 119 on 7/19/09.

It's too hard getting informations for June and July flights.  Sad

I searched only latest flight to IAD EI 119 too see what planes they set to IAD Flights.

EI-EWR served on 31/01, 03/02/, 07/02
EI-LAX served today 10/02

I searched on a.net photo database to see their cabins.
EI-EWR

No PTVs till Dec 2008 though.

Don't know about EI-LAX.

Hope that helped you.

Fatmir

EI usually send the A330-200 to IAD, so you'll be guaranteed PTV's when you fly this summer, only if it's a 332!

There's no way of knowing for sure which aircraft will operate the flight, aircraft are often switched, even up until the day of the flight!

Just curious: how will it change your preparation for the trip regardless of the PTV configuration? You could always show up and have inoperative IFE even if it's installed (this is not unheard of), so always be prepared. A book and an iPod go a long way! Have a great trip!  Smile

Thanks party pooper!  butthead  Yeah, I know it happened to me on VX before, but they gave me a lofty $25 gift certificate that I never used. Anyways, it's all good.... I've done some research and it appears that with EI, the lower your standards, the happier you shall be. So, lower standards I have.
