Re: AA reconsidering seatback video screens

AA had some bomb-ass AVOD systems on the 738 and A321 domestically. Not sure if they removed all of them in Y, but the interface was really impressive. I also enjoyed the looped audio on the 738, especially the '80s station on the flip down LCD's on the 738. Not sure if that system exists these day...
