Top Features On International Flights?

Tue Aug 05, 2003 4:52 am

Which are some of the best features -- like personal video screen -- found in economy class on International flights? And which are some of the top airlines in terms of the bells and whistles they offer?

Most longhaul flights in economy include a printed menu, small amenity kit (toothbrush / toothpaste, socks, comb etc), free drinks (including alcohol).

Most likely Singapore, UAL, Swiss(possibly) or BA would be the best airlines for all the bells and whistles.

Personally I think that any airline out there with AVOD is the best, it makes the time fly so fast on any flight. Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Atlantic, USAirways (A330's only) and the new Northwest A330's offer AVOD in Economy as well. They truely offer hours of entertainment with games to enjoy on the side as well. I'm sure there are more airlines that offer AVOD in economy, but I can't think of any others at the moment.

I presume AVOD is Audio-Visual On Demand?

How about reading a book btw?

UAL???  Confused

UAL is very basic, particularly on the B744.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
