Some of the JQ 787 issues are unavoidable ie bird strike & windscreen crack and debris on the runway in SGN damaging the A/C.
Do the JQ A321LR’s have IFE?
Wonder if they plan on putting IFE into there XLR’s
Just streaming IFE, via own devices. The LR’s do have device holders on the back of the seats along with a USB charging port.
It is likely QF's A321s will have the same set up. IFE adds weight as well as being a source of misery for crew who have to deal with customer dissatisfaction when the screen is faulty. Nearly everyone has a smartphone these days so using a BYOD model is so much easier. For the small number of people who may not have a smartphone, I'd expect a few iPads/Galaxy Tabs to be stored onboard and made available as needed.
