|Quoting DocLightning (Reply 7):|
It's so that a hijacker can't know where the plane is exactly, lest they decide to blow it up just as it overflies the Pentagon or something like that.
Except that's absolutely absurd because windows need to be open for landing, so for at least the last 30 min of the flight, a terrorist need only look outside to know where he is.

So even if a terrorist wants to blow the plane above the Pentagone, he can´t (with IFE, without IFE) because the plane just won´t fly over or near it.
