On select Boeing 767 flights in premium cabins, a personal Inflight Theater offers additional entertainment. The Inflight Theater includes a Bose® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® Headset, personal DVD player and a portfolio containing up to 20 DVD selections.
Your discs won't play in an airline's player. Instead of in-seat video terminals, some airlines provide passengers with portable DVD players on selected flights. On its Boeing 767 planes, for instance, American Airlines offers Panasonic DVD players with 7-inch screens to first- and business-class passengers on international flights and to first-class passengers on domestic routes, according to Todd Burke, an American Airlines spokesperson. American stocks 20 DVD titles for each player as well--and that's important, because you won't be able to watch your own discs on an airline's DVD player.
The reason? Hollywood devised a regional coding system for DVDs and players, making discs sold in one region (such as North America) incompatible with players sold in another (such as Asia). The idea is to minimize international video piracy. DVD titles and players offered by the airlines conform to Regional 8 coding, Burke says, while DVD titles and players in North America conform to the incompatible Regional 1 coding.
