Many airlines specially in asia claims to have had the title, "Best Inflight Entertainment", or simply "The Low Fare Airline". Well the fact is, if you get on a low fare, you'll never get the best inflight entertainment, of course when you pay enough, you'll be treated enough as well. But as a passenger, which could benefit you on your journey, "Low fare or Good Entertainment?" This is not to trigger a debate.

So true. I myself am not big on the PTV or IFE. I like to read and most of all a nice meal. There is just something about eating a meal on a airplane, one of life's pleasures. Whether you have to pay extra or not.

Oh yea! I remember a couple of years ago I few NAT-GRU on Varig first class. Great service and a great meal. That had to be one of my best flights. A classic 3 holer, great food and cute Brazilian FAs!
Whether you have to pay extra or not a meal is better than IFE.

I'm not a fan of IFE on ANY flight, except maybe occasional use on very long flights. Last trip to MNL on NW 71/72 from DTW, I watched only 1 of the four movies offered in coach, and on the return I watched none of them. I never listen to any of the channels of music and information. I MUCH prefer a quiet ride and a book. I'm an aisle seat person, too. I like to get up and stretch periodically, especially when I'm stuck in the back of the plane, and I get to feeling sort of claustrophic in a window seat in most coach cabins...but I really like it in business when the pitch is more humane. So it really depends on legroom whether I want a window seat.
Your profile has your contact info withheld. Send me an email thru my profile. I like the Philippines, and have flown PR 744 and 343, as well as Asian Spirit Dash-7 to Cataclan (Boracay). I'd like to talk about the Philippines a little if you don't mind.
Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.

Some places don't have a significant difference between the two from a price point standing.
For instance, flying from PER - SYD and return, the difference between Virgin Blue (low-fare, low-cost) and Qantas (full service, full fare) is only $50 - $100. Its not really a lot and as a result i'll take the full service over a low cost carrier, especially on a 6 hour flight like this one. However, if Virgin Blue could significantly cut the cost for the flight then i'd reconsider.

If there is a significant different between the costs of LCC and a full service airlines on short haul routes, LCC will get my money. To entertain myself on short haul flight, I can simply biring a book. As for long haul flight, IFE is an important factors and there aren't many LCC around which operates long haul flights.
