Its a good question actually. I've flown AA
flights where they have been in duration of 2.5-3 hrs and there has only been "CBS Eye on AA
." Recently I flew EWR
on a 757 and they showed a movie and the flight was supposed to be 3hr 23min but turned out to be under 3 hrs. My connecting flight from DFW
was on another 757, just about 3hrs in length and they did not show a movie. I would guess that AA
shows movies on flights over 3 hrs and short programming on flights less than that.
