I just flew on a 737-800 ORD-ANC, and it featured a very nice Flight Map feature for DIRECTV.
Very nice, I was hoping they'd add a map on directv.
there is hope .... that UA will RISE AGAIN !!!!
Is it free?
I'm not sure, but I doubt it. The Flight Map is channel 11 on the DIRECTV system, basically an addition to the 10 preloaded channels on the system.
The channel does not exist on this B738 flight.
What's the audio on that channel? Perhaps ch.9 by some miracle?
No audio on that channel.
The dear respected Supreme Leader Smisek has once again improved the world's leading airline.
I wish the DTV planes had some pure music channels akin to the non-DTV aircraft. Even the so-called music channels on DTV don't have much music any more
No Flight Map on the ANC-ORD 738 I just boarded.
The cynic in me says they want nothing free so as to coerce you to swipe, swipe swipe. The UA quest seems to be no free ife in their aircraft that is primarily domestic. The refurbishment of the airbus seems to prove that out as they continue to yank out free ife from the domestic fleet.
Afaik, there is no music
The trend industry-wide is away from in-seat IFE and towards BYOD. This isn't just UA doing it.
