booked a flight for my family (3 kids) to ZRH in november. it seems to me that the plane doesnt have seat back entertainment and i'm trying to figure out if the plane has streaming media? it seems like it has wifi so not entirely sure if that means it has streaming media. does it also have power outlets? we are stuck in economy for now unless business saver opens up

No AVOD, no power outlets (at least in Y) and probably no streaming.

J does have power outlets and a Samsung tablet. Last time I had to download a couple movies on Netflix just in case. Slept through most of the flight so I didn't check streaming.

According to aa.com, MCE has power outlet but Main does not.

I think they are the DC / cigarette style ports though. Some seats in Y (non MCE) have them too, although it is a small number

it is the only nonstop to ZRH on AA always. The JFK route was canned.

and yes, the 767s are pretty poor.

For J I think they still have international power outlets; but for Y you are right - only some seats have cig style ports.

The 767s have an awful product. Oddly, there is Live TV but no other streaming entertainment.

You are correct about J. Post refit they have the international multi country power AC power outlet up front.

I was on one of these aircraft 2 years ago for GIG-MIA, seated in an, "exit row," and had a cigarette-style power port. Nearly everyone around me, including the FA, was surprised when I pulled an adapter out of my backpack and plugged in my computer.
About 2 years before that, I was on a 777 prior to refurbishment, and it also had the same type of power. After researching that aircraft here on FT, I bought the adapter from Amazon, I think it was about $25, and I've gotten a bit of use out of it.

AA at least used to have cigarette light power ports every three rows or so in coach on their MD-80s, 737s (c. 2000 delivery fleet), and 763s. The seat map on AA.com used to clearly show where the power ports are, but I don't see a seat map anymore. So if those are still there in the exit rows, I'd imagine they're still there every three rows or so. But I haven't been on an AA 763 in about a decade, and certainly not one since the cabin improvement project; maybe they did remove the power ports that were there in coach.

See the older and 2018 threads on power ports.
