My thoughts would be that they try to put those aircrafts with the reconfigured PTVs in coach on more "mainline" routes such as CDG, MAN, MAD, LGW. I will be flying EWR-CPH and OSL-EWR in early January and I'm assuming these are not top priority routes for CO to receive the fittings.
|Quoting 777gk (Reply 4):|
Any 757-200 route at any given time has an equal shot of getting the 757 with AVOD. CO does not prioritize specific 757s for a given market; they are rotated throughout the system quite randomly.
|Quoting Mcamargo (Reply 6):|
I flew last month on a 777 from IAH-LGW and LGW-IAH that still had looped video.
Will all 777s eventually get AVOD?
|Quoting AirTranTUS (Reply 9):|
Do you know when all the 777's are supposed to be done?
|Quoting CALTECH (Reply 13):|
Then as that one gets modified, the next one will come in and so on, until the fleet is completed sometime next year
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 14):|
It'll be a race to see which fleet finishes first, but both fleets will be AVOD equipped. I thought the 777s would finish first since they have fewer of them, but the 757s are easier to take out of service than the 777s
|Quoting JetSetter629 (Reply 16):|
Just out of curiosity, how long and how complicated is the process of installing AVOD on aircrafts?
|Quoting AlexPorter (Reply 18):|
Really? They're pretty new - or are they just 787 stopgaps more or less?
|Quoting AirTranTUS (Reply 25):|
I have another question. If I were to fly transAtlantic with CO in July 2008, my chances of flying an AVOD equipped 777 would be much higher than an AVOD 757? The 777 is also more desirable because it has PTV's, albeit on a loop system, but that is better than overhead screens.

Ship 853 ( a 753) is still in MCOMX. It should be out in the next few days, allowing the 752 in for it's makeover...
|Quoting Akelley728 (Reply 24):|
I haven't been following all of the CO 752 changes - Why did this particular 752 have a STC?
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 26):|
So next summer, your odds will be higher that you'll be on a 752 with AVOD
|Quoting CALTECH (Reply 27):|
We are also modifying the 737-800s with a new galley, adding 2 1st class seats and getting rid of the eyebrow windows, and this month we are to install winglets on our plain 737-900s, which the first aircraft will also be a STC aircraft.
|Quoting 777gk (Reply 29):|
What's the deal with the new galleys on the -800s? Lighter materials? Didn't notice any wholesale changes on my last flight on a ship with the modified configuration.
|Quoting AlexPorter (Reply 30):|
Sorry - this is just one of those acronyms that I haven't learned yet - what does STC mean in this case? Being from Minneapolis originally I just think of the St Cloud Airport - obviously it means something else here.
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 32):|
Great info. It just doesn't happen to say what STC stands for. As far as I can see, the whole website refers to it as STC...
