IFE In LH And AC

Fri Oct 26, 2007 4:25 pm

Just joined the site, been floating around for a while.

We will be flying to CPT in January, returning February. We will be transiting FRA. What are the odds that we will have the new upgraded IFE on those flights. I know we are on an AC 767 so I guess the possibility of new IFE is not bad. But what about the LH 346? On the return we are on an SA 346 and an unknown AC aircraft.

Thanks for all the info.

Forgot, these are all in economy.

as soon as your booked in economy you won't see any IFE on LH birds. they're still testing two systems, but this could take a long time until all aircrafts are equipt with them.
in business class you'll have IFE.

The tests have been completed. The plan is to start installing the new systems in the Airbuses starting in November and they are to be completed by April, so there is a chance that you will have a PTV.

A346s and A333s for sure. I'm not positive but I think the A343s will and the 744s are still undecided.

Quoting LHUSA (Reply 4):

key, so we will see LHs PTVs on the A343s and A333s first. I really hope they put it on the 744s too.

Thanks for the replies. I knew that LH completed the test period so I am hoping they are installed on the 346's first. Which system did LH decide on?
