The "Ultimate PTV Thread" - II. Edition + Avod!

Wed Aug 17, 2005 4:41 am

Almost a year has passed since I posted the “Ultimate PTV Thread” in November so it was time for the second edition. This time I included “AVOD” (Audio/Video-on-Demand) info from the beginning.

For all new members: this thread is exclusively about inflight entertainment options in Economy class, not about Business and First.


Additional data requires additional shortcuts and symbols, so please read the following instructions carefully in order to perceive all details given in the list:


  • all listed aircraft types without further notice or symbols have PTVs on board


  • * = only parts of fleet equipped with PTV or installation in process
  • A = PTV plus AVOD (Audio/Video-on-Demand) available
  • A* = standard PTV on board; part of fleet also equipped with AVOD or its installation in process
  • *A* = fleet partly with and without PTV or partly without PTV, and partly with AVOD or its installation in process
  • A+ = standard PTV available and planned to receive AVOD, or future deliveries planned to include AVOD
  • +A = PTV not available but fleet planned to receive AVOD
  • L = PTV & LiveTV
  • L* = PTV & LiveTV partly available or installation in process
  • L+ = LiveTV planned with future deliveries


  • A330 = all series if not specified
  • A340 = all series if not specified
  • B767 = all series if not specified
  • B777 = all series if not specified

  • Italics = future fleet addition


Before you start checking the data, please be aware the list is not absolutely complete. Quick changes in aviation are quite common and there are always pieces of information which cannot be gained easily and without doubt. Especially in terms of AVOD it is very hard sometimes to get reliable info.
So should you find mistakes or data missing, don’t hesitate to let me know. Last time many members helped me in extending and upgrading the original list. So thanks in advance for any input!  Smile

Thanks Udo, great information!

China Airlines 747-400 has 4 airframes in their 744 fleet with Boeing Signature Interior installed, which as AVOD in the econ class. (B-18210, B-18211, B-18212, B-18215)

I'm not sure if they updated B-18209 with AVOD and Signature Interior after they installed Connexion by Boeing on that plane. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks for that! Indeed these are the four new B744s which they received between 12/04 and 04/05. I knew there was something missing for CAL!

Both B762 and B764 are equipped with PTVs, I just wrote "B767" for all series.

Air Canada should be noted as +A for the remainder of their fleet (minus the CRJ200s)

Installation on the existing fleet begins this fall - new deliveries have the system installed, but not activated.

I wasn't sure about that after the latest AC decisions. Which aircraft will be included besides B763, CRJ705, E175 and E190 - A319/320/321 also? Any news on A330 and A343?

Lufthansa: A332

Does LH actually offer a program on the PTV's of their 332's? I mean, they only have two (?) of them and developing a special PTV program for so few airplanes would be a bit pricey in my opinion. Does anyone have info?

An AC executive confirmed - on another board, that the refurb will go ahead on the A333/343 fleet. The Narrowbody fleet will start conversion this fall, and the widebody fleet starts in March 2006 IIRC.

I have searched quite a bit to find that out but without results. I guess someone who has flown on the aircraft can tell us. Anyways, the two A332 leave in winter, so LH goes totally non-PTV again.

Yes, they are ex-SIA - but the question is whether the PTVs are really operational.

These two remaining A332 have indeed got PTV. I flew on one of them (D-AIME) and i also flew on one of the ones that has been returned to lessor (D-AIMC), they all have PTV in economy. This due to the fact that they are leased birds from Sabena and Swissair.

Not really.

Yes, they work, but they only show the same program that is being shown on the main screens...no choice for additional channels.

The PTV's are being installed on the 767 the same time that the FIRST cabin is being removed, WTP being installed as well as NCW. This is known as dusking.

TG will install PTV with AVOD in B777-300 Y class, similar to those on A340, beginning from Oct'06. I know this is far in the future. But since you put B772ER on the list, then I think it is relevant. I only have documents in Thai. If I can find document in English, I'll post here.

Yup - will be a consistent system right from their CRJ705s to A340s. More info on their system from Thales (sorry only in PDF): http://www.thalesgroup.com/all/pdf/cp_aircanada.pdf

There's photos somewhere of the E175 with the seatback screens installed - gotta love widescreen PTVs!!

  • *A* = fleet partly with and without PTV or partly without PTV, and partly with AVOD or its installation in process
  • A+ = standard PTV available and planned to receive AVOD, or future deliveries planned to include AVOD
  • +A = PTV not available but fleet planned to receive AVOD
  • L = PTV & LiveTV
  • L* = PTV & LiveTV partly available or installation in process
  • L+ = LiveTV planned with future deliveries

  • A330 = all series if not specified

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

I have collected all that over a longer period of time. But it's my pleasure to show how many IFE-equipped alternatives there are besides some certain German flag carriers...  Wink

Another surprise to hear that! I added the B762ER to the list - I guess the remaining 22-year old B762 non-ER won't be upgraded, right?

From the information I've read/seen, it applies to all. Even the rickety 762 non-ER.

That would be a real surprise, considering the age of the aircraft and rising fuel prices.

Should Transaero be added to the list as it is now in possesion of several ex-Virgin Atlantic 747-200s apparently with PTVs still installed?

Asiana: A330, B777


Asiana's A330s equipped with AVOD, so it should be A330 A

For 777, one of the 6 777s has AVOD, and 5 others only have PTV. I have no idea if Asiana has plan to upgrade all of them to AVOD.

Thus,
A330 : A
B777 : A*

ANA: B744*, B763ERA*, B772, B772ER, B773ERA

As far as I know, all 744 configured for international flights are equipped with PTV, some of them being equipped with AVOD, so I would quote them as B744A*

The 744D for domestic flights are not equipped with PTV.

Correct me if I'm wrong,

Fantastic work, Udo! This is really useful stuff!

Quoting Udo (Thread starter):
Air India: B744* (VT-AIE/AIF), B777

For your information, from November 2005 (or later), each fully-owned B744 (6) will be grounded and refitted with new interiors, along with PTV.. no idea which system though. I will try to keep you updated, if I am able to obtain the info

Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 11):
Does LH actually offer a program on the PTV's of their 332's? I mean, they only have two (?) of them and developing a special PTV program for so few airplanes would be a bit pricey in my opinion. Does anyone have info?

You should probably note this in your list, that the PTV existence is limited.

Sidenote  sarcastic  : if the PTV programme is as crappy as their big screen entertainment programme, it is better for them to go without PTVs at all  innocent

Udo,
You forgot the UK's latest addition to the PTV list, First Choice Airways!

All the B767-300s have PTVs in every seat with AVOD available. Premium passengers have 41 channels and AVOD as standard, economy passengers have 33 channels in broadcast mode but can pay an upgrade fee of £5, they can then have access the same IFE content as Premium passsengers and get full AVOD capability. The system is the Panasonic eFx.

A few days ago I flew Air France 777 from JFK to CDG. The aircraft was F-GLZG an it hadn't Video on Demand only PTV. The steward told me, not every AF 777 aircraft has Video on demand.
Never the less, on the way to New York on a A340-300 I had to wait 15 minutes for starting the movie. So it wasn't on demand.  Wink
