On seeing pictures of the 787's in-flight entertainment and seats, I was struck by how ancient everything looked. It all looks so very 2007, ahem.
Take a look at the following pics. The first shows Panasonic's new smart monitor (the strangely-named eco 9i) in a slimline seat and the other shows older generation Panasonic monitors installed on the new ANA 787.
The difference is stark. I also spy precious knee space that could be carved out of the ANA seat. Boeing, isn't it time to update your 787 catalog with the new integrated IFE/seats (and let airlines that have waited out the 787's long delay change their original order)?
