PTVs In Y Class

Sat Jul 26, 2003 11:13 pm

I was just thinking about the PTVs in Y class when I saw the new NWA A330-300 at DTW.

Doesn't it get annoying having someone push the screen on YOUR seatback? Little kids kicking the back of the seat is bad enough, but with someone pushing buttons on the PTV? I can't imagine, unless the PTV controls are somewhere else.

Some airlines have the controls beneath the PTVs (Emirates), which I think are the best position. Most have handsets which double up as a phone, that can be detached from the side of the armrest. Others, like British Airways, have their controls on the upper surface of the arm rests! Most silly! So you get your PTV disrupted when your neighbour gets up from his seat and he accidentally lays his palm on your controls.
