Though small in diameter and often poor in resolution the seat-back screens once made the difference between premium and low-cost flying. Not anymore. "Phones and tablets are the technology (...) our customers have choses," argues American. They are most probably right.
Instead, American plans to offer WiFi connectivity throughout its domestic fleet by the end of 2019. A year earlier, each seat will feature power outlets to charge your device during flight. American will receive four Boeing 737 MAX this year and has 96 more on order.
IFE screens will remain part of the passenger experience on American long-haul flights and on the A321T fleet.
