I personally think a good idea to save some money vs. buying completely new AVOD systems would be to transplant the existing seats/AVOD onto younger 757s that lack the system.

I don't know the answer but it isn't just as simple as you suggest. There is a lot more than just swapping out the seats with the PTVs, it would require a significant amount of mod work particularly involving the aircraft electrical system. There are substancial costs involved for the installation, certification, and labor regardless if the equipment is "free". This also would require labor to remove the seats from the aircraft being retired.

Don't have a clue as to the first part but as to the second, this is precisely why they went with LCDs over more PTV installations; because the fleet won't be around terribly longer and they won't realize true ROP.

Well, DL actually did do something similar with the 76Ts, where the seats/IFE was pulled out of the domestic 763s that DL returned to the lessors (of course, without the satellite TV equipment).
