The question is often posed, unlike Westjet and JetBlue, why did AC
go for AVOD versus Direct/Live TV
Simply put, all of AC
's fleet will be equipped with the operating platform. WS
fly mainly within territorial North America and largely during prime tv viewing hours. As AC
's operation is round the clock, and around the world, often out of prime TV
range. In the end, this was the final consideration.
With planned software upgrades, the system will continue to improve. Haven't heard yet whether the T-7's will operate with the same or an enhanced level of the Thales system.
