Electrical Engineering/DVD/VCD/CD Player with TV Set/Monitor on Planes.


Dear Prof Cleggsan

Are DVD/VCD/CD Player with TV Set/Monitor on commercial flights i.e. Local and International facility provided by aircraft carriers ?. viz Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, Delta airlines, Jet airways, British airways,Singapore airlines,Qatar Airways etc.

The flight passengers on board will be able to watch movies or any other entertainment programs on the TV Monitor set interfaced with DVD/VCD/CD Player. This entertainment program/s on the plane will be operated by the air carrier staff and not by the passengers.
by the Aircraft carrier

Can these cause disturbances to the electronics navigation instruments panels within the plane ?. If yes what type of problems can happen ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Oh, yes. They all have them and have had video playing equipment in them for years.  The products used are aviation approved and are no problem.

Don't you fly much?  

I have never seen a long distant airline that does not have movie and video playing equipment in the aircraft!
