Delta's MD90s notwithstanding, do any MD80s or DC30/40/50 have IFE? If so, what airline equips the planes, and with what type(s) of IFE?

No, if you also take a look at the thread about Delta fleet updates, it's stated in there that the MD-80's and DC-9's will not get any IFE except Wifi

I know Iberia used to have drop-down LCDs on their MD-87s, but the system was removed to save weight.

Also, I have heard about one airline (can't remember the name) who had audio IFE on their DC-9s.

I think the OP meant any airline not including Delta since it was already discussed.

Anyway, if DL installs PTVs on their MD-90s, they would be the first ever McD narrowbodies to be equipped with PTVs.

Sorry, I should have clarified: Has ANY airlines outfitted their MD80s or DC-9s (if applicable) with IFE, and if so, which airlines and what type(s) of IFE (i.e. audio, overhead video, PTV, etc.) For some reason Legend Airlines comes to mind, but I don't know much about it.

AA was supposedly thinking of installing LCDs on their M80s back pre 2001...but this never happened for obvious reasons.

Legend had DirecTV on board its DC-9s.

I guess this is somewhat "on topic" but what aircraft can not get PTVs ?

That is what the MD-90 thread says.

Also, I'm sure that this doesn't really count, but I would think that most of the private DC-9s and MD-80s have some form of IFE.

The reason (in Delta's case at least) is that there is not enough room on the relay panel. Installing IFE on an MD-80 series aircraft is not impossible (Iberia had IFE on their MD-87s), however, in Delta's case, it would require an upgraded relay panel.

relay panel

Please pardon my lack of aircraft knowledge, would you mind explaining what this is?

It can be compared to a circuit breaker at your house. Say if you wanted to add more circuits to your home, but there isn't enough space on your circuit breaker. You would have to get a larger circuit breaker to accomodate the additional circuits.

So, in the case of Delta's MD-88s, there isn't enough room to accomodate an IFE system on the relay panel. Delta would need to install a larger relay panel if they were to add an IFE system to their MD-88s.

That analogy makes it much easier to understand. Thanks!  Smile The only other question I have is, where is the relay panel located?

I let you guess what type IFE this DC-9 had!

IB's MD-87 hat fold-down screens above every third seat row. They were the first carrier to introduce such a system on any type of commercial aircraft in the very early 90's.

Don't get me wrong, I love the DC-9. When I was a we lad my first commercial flight was aboard a DC-9 but... They say you can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig.  Silly

Investing in IFE for a DC-9 is like putting a $2,000 sound system in a 1985 Dodge Aries.  confused  Oh wait... Well now we know what Delta would be doing with those NW DC-9s if the airline was run by a bunch on high school seniors.  bigthumbsup

I know DL had PTVs (non-AVOD) in J on their MD-11s. Also, isn't KLM adding AVOD on every seat on their MD-11s?
