The ultra-exciting thing about this, however, is that Continental is bringing 80 channels of live television to its Boeing domestic fleet. This will be bar none the very best live television system flying in the skies - and it's being provided by JetBlue subsidiary LiveTV. JetBlue's system only offers 36 channels. I just did a piece on it at http://tinyurl.com/5ggt5g
Continental is really setting itself apart on this one!

Make that 40.

A/C 128 was released from maintenance yesterday. A/C 122 is the last one. It is currently in heavy check at IAH.

A/C 413 (739ER) is the first one scheduled for LiveTv.



Is it broke...? Yeah I'll fix it.

Seeing that the 777 have much more vast selections in its AVOD system, why does the 752 have a mere 25 movies and tv shows, 50 CD's etc? Is it because of weight?

I don't know. I can't get excited about this. 80 channels of bad TV shows and commercials?
While I enjoy watching a good movie on a long flight, I would never watch regular TV (and would certainly not pay for watching commercials...). In my opinion, inflight internet is going to be the killer application -- not inflight access to 80 channels of TV.

CO's 752s are always a pleasure to fly on. The seat back TVs are a great addition. I fly back and forth between MCO and EWR every other month so having a nice movie or TV show to put on, along with wearing my noise canceling headset makes the crying babies disappear and the two hour flight seem even shorter.

I was wondering if in economy, people have to pay for this service? Or still just the headsets.

AVOD on the 757-200s, 777-200ERs is free.

The new LiveTv offering coming to the 737-700s, 737-800s, 737-900s, 737-900ERs and 757-300s will be for a fee. The money goes to LiveTv as they are paying for the installation of all of the aircraft in exchange for keeping the revenue.

The 767-400s will get the AVOD when the 777-200ERs are complete.

Who knows at this point, I think CO's original intentions were to retire the 767-200s as soon as they acquired the 787-8. However with the delays in the 787 program the 767-200 will be flying on with CO for the foreseeable future, however they will be the last aircraft to get the new BusinessFirst seats and AVOD installation. However I'm still not sure they will, it all depends.

Hopefully I will get a chance to fly on one before they are retired, I've flown on every CO type except the 777-200ER and 767-200.

If by 'bed' you mean the Crew Rest area, yes. That and AVOD are installed at HKG while the aircraft are at HAECO for C checks.

If your a sports fan you might have a different point of view on this one.

Flew in one today (ham-ewr) and I must say the AVOD makes a big difference and also makes the flight bearable. The plane was airborne for 9h 34mn.

Hey all,

that is a great news. I flew 757 across the Atlantic this summer and AVOD made the difference. I am glad to hear that CO is done with 757 and moving on with its projects. I am definitely going with CO on my next transatlantic flight!

Cheers,
Andrej

27 LASOctoberB6 : I was on N12125 on 29NOV and I had forgotten that CO was throwing AVOD systems into the B752s.. I was so happy that they also had the 110V plugs too..
