B777 Gasper?

Fri Jun 07, 2002 8:02 pm

Hi Guys,

I just saw this switch on the overhead panel in Flight Simulator, and i was wondering what the Gasper is, when your parked at the gate it's supposed to be on if that helps.

Any help appreciated

If I remember correctly, a "gasper" is the air vent (nozzle) that you find on the passenger panel above the seat--the one near the reading lights and call least I think that's what it is.

That's right. It's actually referred to as a gasper system. A fan is used (gasper fan) to increase the flow of air in the gasper ducting.

Interesting that a lot of 777s with major airlines don't have gaspers. Certainly it saves money and weight and it seems the airlines think the passengers don't want them.

If they don't have gaspers, then that means that they wouldn't have the air vents on the PSU's, right? Jeez.... I dunno how I could put up without one, I always have em on full blast the whole flight!

BA777: For you Brits, that's called the Punkalouver. That's why you didn't recognize the switch. Regards,
