United Airlines announced it has introduced Zune inflight audio onboard its entire fleet, offering passengers complementary channels and pre-programmed playlists. It will continue to offer "From the Flight Deck" audio, which allows passengers to listen in on live communication between the flight deck and ATC.

Hmmm...not so sure I want the unwashed listening into my conversations as one may interpret something wrong and yell "we're gonna crash!"

United has had From the Flight Deck for years.



Always wonderers if this "last and final boarding call" is in fact THE last and final boarding call.

I did a search before posting couldn't find anything...maybe it's the MS Zine that is new.

MS Zine is new. From the cockpit, more known as "Channel 9" on these boards, has been discussed to death.

OK. I wonder if the UA cockpit can turn it off if they need to. Do any other majors have FTFD?

For starters its ZUne, not Zine.

Secondly there was a thread about this a month or so ago when the switch from XM was announced.

Why do that?

Personally, I've been listening to channel 9 on UA flights for 16 years. On trans-cons across the US there can be 20-30 minute intervals with no radio traffic -- it can become deadly boring. Many listeners tune-in after takeoff or before landing -- then switch to something more entertaining.

Pilots can turn off channel 9, I've experienced that once when thunderstorms were causing mischief in Denver. I suspect the pilot didn't want us to hear the discussion with ATC.

I'm pretty sure it even says in the Hemishperes magazine that channel 9 is the pilots discretion
