Fri Jun 04, 2004 10:35 pm

What kind of service can I expect next month when I fly to JNB on VS? What is the most likely entertainment system?

You should be expecting to fly on an A340-300 with either the Arcadia or Odyssey IFE. You can find more information on http://www.v-flyer.com.

Happy Flying  Smile

What's difference between the different entertainment systems?

The main difference is that Odyssey has a larger screen and four extra movie channels.

Some flights to JNB have been operated recently by the A340-600 so you may even get v:port!

Thanks Skytrain

It much appreciated. I've wanted to ask for some time, but I thought it was a stupid question.

Ok. Thanks for your help. Maybe I will get lucky and get V:Port or more passengers than expected and the aircraft upgraded to a 747-400.

No chance of a 744 I'm afraid. There are no 744 flight deck crews down in JNB anymore, so nobody to fly the a/c back, unless the crew took minimum rest !!.
