757 Question

Does anyone know if they finished installing Direct TV on the 757-200 and 757-300s (domestic)? If not do they have AVOD or still just overhead monitors? How about the 767-200?

Thanks for the help!

The 757-200 is primarily used on overseas flight. This fleet does not have DirecTV (which only works over U.S. airspace), but instead nose-to-tail AVOD.

The 757-300 is primarily used on domestic flights and has DirecTV.

The 767-200 is in the process of being retired out of the fleet and only has the older loop-style IFE, with small monitors at each seat.

The 757-200 from EWR to IAH has AVOD in the back of each seat (flat bed version)? How about the 757-300 on that route, just overhead video screens?

Thanks.

Currently only overhead screens. The LiveTV install is supposed to happen at some point.
