I saw this picture and was wondering what those little sliding-door type things are in the back of the head rests.

i keep getting the wrong image up but its the top of yesterday one of the royal brunei A319

I am not sure what that is.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

After you click on the picture above, there is a link to click on to contact the photographer, perhaps he would have your answer. If you find out, let us know, I'm curious to know what they are as well.

I e-mailed him and will let you know as soon as he replies. Does anyone know who manufactures the seats for the Royal Brunei A319s so that we can find this out?

This is a puzzle! According to their website, the airbuses don't have PTV or power in economy, so not those.

A mirror?

Something to do with the Muslim faith?

Is that in Y? That looks like a nice cabin. I'm not used to seeing rounded tops on coach seats.

Maybe it's empty, so they can install PTV's or power later?

AeroVodochody, i thought that but this looks like it slides open which they would not let it do if it were intended for PTVs that are to be installed later (i think)

PTV's is my guess. I don's think that they slide open. I think it's a plate being help by a wire retainer and the "handle" in the photo is the release for the retaining clip.

Sorry, I should have said future PTV. The blank is an ok size for the screen, right? I mean I think they make them that small.

That's true, but they may have just shoved a plastic box in there to protect it and for the pax to use as storage or something.  Confused  Confused  Confused

If the pitch is small enough, you'd have a big screen tv.  bouncy

They may have, just not the A319. Or they skipped the thread because the name wasn't mentioned in the title.  spin
