Japan Airlines has taken delivery of its first of four Boeing 767-300ERs with the TopSeries inflight entertainment system on board.
The aircraft seats 30 business class seats and 197 in economy. In both classes, most passengers have a 10.6 inch widescreen display with slim-line control unit. The system supports broadcast audio, audio and video on-demand (AVOD) and ASXi moving map application powered by Airshow. The system also provides USB and RCA ports for personal electronic device connection. USB ports enable travellers to charge personal devices during flight and RCA ports enable passengers to view their own personalised content. Expected entry into service is slated for late October. All four aircraft will be delivered by January 2011.
“Thales is most appreciative to the long time partnership it shares with Japan Airlines. We have been working together for over a decade and look forward to supporting their 767 fleet,” said Alan Pellegrini, managing director for the Thales In-flight Entertainment business.
Japan Airlines has already selected Thales for its B787 and B777 domestic aircraft.
