Do you really think disabling a function is going to take a while?

These systems are highly programmable, and it's probably just a matter of removing it from the menu system.

The older systems may be more difficult to program than the newer ones because they're the ones most likely to be hard-coded. Doesn't the 777 seat have a map button, for example?
