Perhaps "major" was a bit strong of a term, but I don't think I would call it "minor" either. I guess I will split the difference and just call it "significant." Don't get me wrong, I would gladly sacrifice streaming IFE to resume normal F&B service.

Very true. Thankfully the majority of DL aircraft I'm on have seat back screens. Usually when I am on a non seat back screen aircraft (formally an MD, but now probably a 717) the routes are usually less than an hour. Still, these planes do occasionally operate longer runs (I seem to remember being on a 717 SEA-LAS last year) and the streaming will be missed.
