Thanks 'vhebb' for the confirmations...I agree, and will place my money on -EBL and -EBG (when it gets done) on having Y ipad IFE seatback to bring them in line with the 28J product..only the 27J will have fixed Y seatback IFE... So when all is said n done - EBA/B/C/D/E/F/G/L will be 28J with Y ipad and 'domestic' WIFI hump, AND -EBM/N/O/P/Q/R/S/V will be 27J with Y fixed screen IFE.

Be interesting to see if QF would move to a hybrid IFE platform for the 738 like delta has for the C-Series - tablets and streaming - but are fixed to the seat so look like a standard IFE screen. Even just for business class, especially with 738 flying to DPS, NAN and SIN.

I’d imagine the damage done to the iPads due to broken charging cables and people trying to steal them would be not huge, but combined with removing them off the aircraft for inspect etc- maybe better to fix them in the seat.

I know I’m an odd one out of this site, but I hate using my personal device to stream would much rather some form of PTV!

About a third of the 738 fleet already has PTVs and they are pretty good at making sure that these are the aircraft used on international routes.

Something for them to think about when replacing the 737s though, these long routes really do need a proper integrated IFE system and not just BYOD or messy iPads in J.

I suspect QF is more likely to continue BYO only
After 10 years the IFE units look ancient eg. The soon to be retired Rockwell Collins units on OEB and EBL.

Even the 737 units are small and not full hd and showing their age versus a 10" tablet

Does anyone think we’ll get to see a 747 in the new livery before they go? Or is it too costly if theyre gonna be retired in two years?

No, it's not a coincidence that the due date for painting the entire fleet and the expected retirement date for the 747s are the same.
