Inflight entertainment on IAH-FRA (CO 46)

Folks
Co.com says some of the 767s have AVOD - I am flying with my 7 year old son on the SFO-IAH-FRA-PNQ trip 30th of June - just confirmed my tix a couple hours ago. Would you know if there's a way to find out if that 767 flying IAH-FRA has AVOD installed?
Thanks a bunch guys!!

Sure there's a way: it doesn't.
NONE of the 767 fleet has AVOD, and I'm curious as to where on co.com it states otherwise.
ALL of the 767 fleet has PTV video equipment in each seatback, with twelve channels of video feed played on either betamax or 8mm film, never can tell which.
Still a comfortable plane, though.

767 IFE

All of CO's older IFE systems with tape players for video sources use Hi-8 machines. On the 767 there are 16 tape players - BF has access to all 16 channels and YC has access to at least half of these. These aircraft also have games on the IFE system, FYI.

AVOD for the 767's is in-work now and the first installation will happen in 2011.

CO operates their 777s as 3-3-3, not 3-4-3. The 76s do have an extra inch of pitch over the 777s, too.
