Satellite Tv For The DL 739's?

Thu Sep 12, 2013 6:19 pm

Just looking at the exterior pictures of the new DL 739's I don't see the satellite "hump" for the IFE. Is that added later or will these birds be just like the "long haul" IFE with no "live" tv option? Will these also be fitted with the streaming GoGo wifi like the 753 fleet?

Quoting AV8AJET (Thread starter):

I believe all DL planes above 50 seats have GoGo so the answer is yesthere. I've also read that the 739s will have LiveTV but IIRC I don't think Boeing installs it, so it wouldn't have the hump yet. But I could be wrong.

I'm guessing that they install the dish at a later date or perhaps they haven't got the system approved for the 739ER yet. Here's a photo from five years back when DL's first 73G was built and the satellite TV dish was not yet installed:

The 739ERs are supposed to have the same IFE as the 73Gs as well as what they are putting on the 738s (some of the 738s have the PTVs while others do not).

The streaming AVOD will also be there, as Delta had previously announced that by the end of 2013, all two-class domestic a/c would have it. So as the 739ERs come in, they will have it as well.

AVOD is already installed. The live tv is part of the Delta domestic AVOD package but a separate mod. It will get done before EIS.
What gets measured gets done.
