I believe the only 733s that had the monitors was a subfleet of 733-LRs that had auxiliary fuel tanks and slightly upgraded CFM engines. The 734s also had IFE too but I don’t think every 734 was equipped. I know US at one point had a subfleet of 734s that was EOW so maybe all EOW birds had IFE. I’v...
