Many airlines are going to device streaming since we all bring either phones and/or pads and/or laptops on trips. It saves weight plus the folks can plug into power ports so I don't agree AA was just slapped in the face. Agree. In five years UA will still be adding in these screens and they’ll alre...

Re: How could the US implement intl-to-intl pax transfer?

The U.S. market is too large domestically to add immigration checks. Also, with the notion that a lot of the population doesn't have a passport it would be hard to enforce, especially since in some states everyone can get a drivers license without any sort of information verification.
