I notice that Unied Airlines is boasting that its Boeing 787s (the so called 'Nightmareliners' that have been beset with so many productioon problems) will be 'greener' because they lack personal AVOD (i.e. TVs) in their economy class seat backs.
United wants to encourage travellers to bring their own 'devices' onboard and use Wi Fi.
One manager said 'we're really excited about this.'
I'm not: another reason why US based airlines remain well behind Asian airlines such as Singapore Airlines.
I don't want to have to purchase a laptop or other device merely to have it knocked off from an hotel room when I travel. It's extra weight, but more importantly another item that's got a value to thieves.
These comments about 'green' are a cover to save money and fuel. United ought to emulate Singapore Airlines whose KrisFlyer seatback entertainment system is advanced and comprehensive. The 'green' swindle is another word for 'increased profits at the expense of giving passengers what they want.'
