Just a quick question to all in the know. I am flying from YOW to YYC in September which will be aboard an 320. On the Air Canada website, it states that some of the 320's have the XM project installed already. SO my question is, what are the chances that the 320 that I fly on will have XM? I REEEEEALLY want to have my own PTV!

Also be aware that all features on the system may not be working yet. I flew on two 320's from YYZ to YOW and back. One had the music channels working and one didn't. The movies etc. weren't working but Air Canada's video was.

i've been both amazed and disappointed with the XM system. I had one flying winnipeg to toronto once and it was fantastic, good selection of movies, shows, etc. Then i have had other times where the lack of movies to choose from was disappointing. Only one choice for the 'hollywood' section was not really that much choice, and even more disappointing considering the hollywood section is probably the most popular. Also, the same tv shows all the time. How many times can i watch the pilot episode of the new adventures of old christine?
Does the programming available on the system change with the route/aircraft/duration?
