I've only flown on IFE-equipped UA
aircraft twice as far as I can remember...Both were earlier this year. The T7 LAX
it was just silence, the 744 ORD
was silence. I pulled out the mag and noticed the "captains discretion" note so I flagged down a FA
(I think it was before we even pushed) and stated to ask her "Do you know..." and she interrupted "No, we've already talked to the captain. He's not going to turn on Channel 9 for this flight"
-- It implies she gets that question often
A bit of a bummer, to say the least. Though that was probably the best in flight service I've ever received in Y... and it came close to what I remember from F on NW
(the (great) snack box was nothing by comparison, but the beverage service was...)
I was on an AS
flight (either a 73x or a 75x, I'm pretty sure it was PDX
) several years back and found the AS
equivalent of Channel 9... (maybe it was EX-UA? They certainly didn't say anything about it). Very cool -- I've hoped to 'stomble' across it on every flight since.
actually flew where I wanted to go I probably would change preferred airlines. Alas, there is but one way in and out of PLN.]
