Do some cockpits have any form of entertainment for the flight crew during long-haul flights?

No, to my knowledge there are absolutely no forms of IFE in the cockpits for crews. The only form of IFE is the F/O. IFE in US registered aircraft is illegal and not allowed by the FAA. Remember, the pilots are there to do their job....FLY. IFE would without a doubt be too distracting.

IFE in the cockpit:
- Pressing the call button repeatedly, then telling the onrushing F/A that you slipped.
- Repeat the above until just before the F/A smashes you in the head with a spare oxygen tank.
- The realistic nature movie projected in the windows.
- On the ground, using the "Ground Call" (horn) button when the ground handler has his head in the front wheel well.
- Just before you stop at the gate, brake violently so all the morons who have gotten up bang their heads.
- Start the PA inflight and announce "Hi and welcome to xxx. We are pleased to have you- HOLY CRAP!"

Who needs IFE up there? And remember, these guys are ON THE JOB!

JetBlue pilots can monitor the cabin cameras and the weather channel on cockpit TV screens.

Well, aren't there some unofficial radio frequencies where pilots can tune to so they can talk to other nearby planes? I remember reading about that somewhere.

You talk about IFEs in the cockpit and most pilots think of the acronym's other meaning: In-Flight Emergency.

Hmm, I hope that there are some people (aspecially pilots) who can go 8-10 hours WITHOUT watching some sort of television. It sounds like entertainment has become a sort of "drug" for some.

Ever heard of a portable DVD player? Slap it up on the dash, turn on the auto pilot, and have the FO monitor the radios. Happens all the time I'm sure.


Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever
