Smallest Plane To Have PTVs.

Mon Dec 15, 2003 4:46 am

What is the Smallest Plane to have PTVs? I think it would be the Il-114 but I may be wrong.

What about the Privatair BBJ/ACJ? I don't know if that is smaller than the ll-114 as I don't know too much about russian aircraft. Also would the TV's on the B-Jets be considered PTV's?

jetBlue's new ERJ-190s will all have PTVs. Frontier's A318s have PTVs too.

I noticed those Il-114 as well. I wonder why they have screens!

You could take almost every type of biz jet, most of the newer ones are equipped with PTV...

Speaking about "public" airliners, I don't know about a smaller cabin than the Il-114.

The BBJ and ACJ are large planes, the same size as a 73G or 319.

The IL-114 is tiny.

Quite an impressive cabin on that Ilyushin Il-114! Talk about breaking the stereotype of Russian aircraft interiors.

AFAIK the PrivatAir aircraft are not PTV equipped, rather they give out portable VHS players (or is it DVD now?)...

I've flown a Beechcraft B200 King Air fitted with PTVs at every passenger seat.

Well, the B6 190s are the smallest I can think of, though I guess the IL-114 is about the same size.

I believe all the QANTAS 737-300's have PTV's fitted, and the Ansett 737-300's also had PTV's.

Positive rate,
The Ansett 733s just had drop down LCD screens, not PTVs...P being for Personal..... and QF ones are all conventional monitors.
