How Is BA Avod Installation Going?

Thu Oct 26, 2006 4:19 am

I'm off to NAS in November and the on-line seat allocation is showing a 767 so I was wondering what the chances are of getting an AVOD equipped plane.

Depedns whether you will be flying on a 767 or not! So far only 4 x 767's have AVOD installed. The 747/777 fleet will receive AVOD as they receive their new Club World cabins.  Wink

Thanks for the info.

It is a 767 to NAS but with only 4 done so far it looks like my chances are quite slim.

I flew world traveller and it was installed there, I don't see why not on the 747.
