The Problem With Seat Back TVs: A Different Kind of Super Poke
If you've flown on a flight recently with those glorious seat back TVs, you might have felt some more poking and prodding on your seat back than usual. No, it's not from that little kid kicking the seat behind you. It's actually coming from that little kid who's trying to work the seat back TV behind you.
@richardbranson, May want to rethink the seat-back touch screen idea on Virgin America. Nothing like 3 hours being punched in the head...
We've actually had this happen to us on a Virgin America flight last month from LAX to JFK. Except it wasn't a little kid. It was a fussy old grandmother who was so annoyed the RED system wasn't working as soon as she sat down in her seat. She then continued to punch hard on the screen before her son told her that it would work once the plane took off.
When we were in the air, the poking continued until finally Grams had some absinthe and passed out. Ok, we're joking about that last part but she did take a nap for a while. Then the poking started again. Guess you can't have everything in-flight after all, huh?
