Question
Dear Ali

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

Answer
Hi

Since there connection is wired based, no interference with navigation signals threaten the craft.

even if they be connected via wireless link, the frequency is out of navigation range and it is safe for aircraft.

Apart from all said, at the taking off and landing they Turn the Media off for safety.

Best,
