Im not a big fan of Thales. AC and Jazz both use it. It was a frickin nightmare when we first got it. SO bad that there used to be Thales Reps onboard the aircraft going overseas so they could trouble shoot when the whole system failed (it did that often). I find its still got bugs and some functions will work when others won't,,,, I've travelled on DL and UA and prefer Panasonic. Go with them I say AA.

I pray for the AMR guys they'll go for Panasonic.... Thales stuff is so full of bugs and malfunctions. Better put nothing than a Thales system!
|Quoting 1337Delta764 (Reply 6):|
Thales isn't quite as bad as Rockwell Collins though. The Rockwell Collins system that QF installed has been a total nightmare I heard.

Will this happen during bankruptcy or afterwards????? . Uncertain times at AA, pity! They need new Upper Management ASAP, the IFE should be AA's least worry.
|Quoting gothamspotter (Reply 11):|
For what it's worth, the overhead IFE systems installed on various AA aircraft over the past few years are built by Panasonic, so there is an existing relationship.

I have also heard it will be panasonic....there's also configuration rumors, but they are just that for now. But it should be a 4 class airplane if you take into account premium coach.
