RE: Wondering About IFE? Here's The Global PTV List!

United has standard PTVs in business and first class on its B747s. None in economy--at least not yet.

Widebody To Rather Fly On For 13+ Hrs

A poll:

Which widebody would you rather fly on for 13+ hours?

762? 763? 744? 773? 772? 345? 343?

Assume that the services on the different aircraft are identical (and pretty decent).
