    The last three flights that I have been on this month (IAH to Den, IAH to SEA, and IAH to PHX) have all had Direct TV, but the system has been down on 4 of the 6 legs. The other two legs did not have jets with Direct TV. Is anyone else seeing these problems?

    Worked fine on my last two flights LAX-EWR and EWR-LAX.

    Flights from SFO-STL have no IFE at all and the FAs say that's the wave of the future.

    All the IFE I've ever needed is my iPod and a book. With the proliferation of tablets and laptops these days, people can bring their own IFE.

    Glad I wasn't drinking anything while reading this.:D

    I'm able to self entertain as well. Lots of reading gets done on these flights. I do find it puzzling, though, that they offer wifi, but have no power points throughout Y (can add a data point later in the week for F once my blistering 23% upgrade rate goes into effect on that flight since my last cleared so long ago I don't remember if there were any last time.)
