I was wondering, does anyone know which airlines still have aircraft with analog spin-dial channel/volume controls for the IFE?
Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think some of AA's older 767s might still have the analog spin-dial controls.
I remember when DL had them on their 762s and domestic 763s (except on ships 1401-1404 which had the buttons and green LED 7-segment displays like on the 763ERs). I actually found it strange that the domestic 767s would have the dials while the L-1011s would have the buttons/LED displays, however, I learned that the L-1011s got an IFE upgrade in the early 1990s (with the L-1011-250s and -500s also getting Airshow installed). The domestic 763s have since gotten AVOD and now the channel/volume is controlled by pressing the right button on the PTV, with a menu popping up with the channel and volume controls, as well as the controls for the reading light and FA call.
