I think the A330s and the ex-SQ planes (LF, LG, LH) have them.

Gulf Air are operating the ex-SQ A340-300's on the SYD-SIN-BAH route and these come equipped with PTV's in Y class. So I dare say you will get PTV's on your flight. Also all A330s are PTV equipped in all classes.

They dont have PTV on the 340 in Economy

On the 330 i think they do

Okay reconfirmed above info is correct ( I happenned to be on GULF Site checking out the Grand Prix packages while browsing Airliners also)

Picked from their website-

As for economy class, passengers can enjoy a channel that has been designed to feature a cross-section of entertainment and informative programmes. The selected programme is shown on the main screen. However, on our A330 aircraft, passengers have their individual crystal screens that are fixed at the back of the seats in front of them.

Gulf Air A340s ex-SQ do have PTV's in Y class, which are being used on the SYD-SIN-BAH route. I think they have three of these aircraft so far.

What about A40-LI? No PTV? So they still have SQ's seats on those A340-300?
Let's just blame it on yields.

I've just been in touch with someone who's father is a Capt, on the A330/A340 and he told me:

"Ex-SQ aircraft A40-LG/LH/LI have PTV's in economy class, the rest don't, and yes those 340's still have SQ interiors".
