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


Dear ZZ

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

Practically all commercial airline equipment have movie players and monitors on them.  They are for the entertainment and instructions to the staff and the passengers. I don't know of a commercial airline company that does  not support them with the exception of regional airline where the travel distance is very short and there is not enough time for video programs.

They use equipment that is airline worthy and is tested and approved for use on commercial passenger aircraft.  Many of them now allow passengers to connect to the Internet when in the air for their own private entertainment and news.

Apparently you don't fly much!
