I was wondering, does anyone know what is the difference in costs between an IFE system using flip-down LCD monitors below the overhead bins vs. fixed LCD monitors over the aisles?
The flip-down type below the overhead bins seems to be quite common on 737NGs and A320 series aircraft. The fixed LCDs over the aisles are quite rare on narrowbody aircraft, but are found on many widebody aircraft. However, AA will be installing fixed over-aisle LCDs on their 757s.
I assume that the flip-down monitors cost more, however, does anyone know the difference in cost?
