LY 738 And PTVs

Mon Oct 24, 2005 2:12 am

I remember when the 738 have just arrived, (I think 6 years ago) they were all equipped with PTVs. At some points they have disappeared and there are now only normal screens every 3 rows.
Does anybody know when and why LY decided to remove the PTVs?

LY 1st 738, 4X-EKA arrived in TLV on February 24th, 1999.
It had no PTV from day one just like any other LYs 737s.

As a matter of fact I was at the ceremony in TLV after the a/c arrived.
I have many photos from the event, also inside the a/c and again - it had no PTV.

Weird, I also attended that ceremony, and I remember for a fact PTVs.

Could you check your pics again? It's really interesting. Maybe only C class had PTVs?

The 737's definetly did not come with PTV's. Maybe you are confusing with 777 ceremony
Where you there as well?
I was on stage a few time in the 777 ceremony.
