    I just flew on a 737-800 ORD-ANC, and it featured a very nice Flight Map feature for DIRECTV.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Correct.
    The trend industry-wide is away from in-seat IFE and towards BYOD. This isn't just UA doing it.
