I flew Lufthansa and really liked the inflight map that was on the screen ( when the movie was not being shown) for the JFK - Frankfurt flight. How common are these maps on trips from JFK across the pond? Are they pretty standard now for the big airlines? Thanks.

I fly Air Canada out of YYZ quite frequently on Trans-Atlantics and the Maps are quite common. They show it on most flights to Great Britain, and most of their European Destinations. They even show ETA's, Grounspeeds etc.
I cannot comment on departures out ot the states, I always go through Toronto.

I don't think it matters on what airport you are departing more on the airline and aircraft.
Across the Atlantic i have seen the map's on LH340's, OK310's KL744's and NG767's to my suprise i have not seen them on UA777's (don't know why)???
It is more and more common now than a couple of years ago.

I think it is a program called Air show which responded to the computers of the plane to tell you where u're heading , your speed and etc. I think it shouldd be available in all the new aircrafts... with main screen.. I saw them on every flight i was on

Hi. For those of you wondering why you haven't seen this feature on UAL planes lately, well, that's because it has been temporarily disabled on all of UAL's fleet due to reliability concerns. This happened in mid-November. Hopefully the issue will be cleared up in a timely manner beacause I too enjoy this nifty feature:-)

Delta Airlines has the progressing map feature on their MD-11 aircraft, and Sabena has the map on their A330's. I thought that the feature was only for long flights at first, but I flew Swissair from Zurich to Brussels on an A320 and they had the map on the t.v. screens too.

I recently flew around the world with UA and SQ and both airlines advertised this feature but UA had it turned off. It was working fine on SQ. One feature UA offered on its 777 but not 774 was the ability to tune the audio into the cockpit and hear the radio conversation between the aircraft, other aircraft in the area and ATC.
