    Question US Air...music available on board?

    I have flown US AIR a few times and have noticed what looks to be a place where you can plug in headphones for different music channels. I've never heard any mention of it by flight crew. I know they sell headphones for movies but is this music thing available as well?
    Thanks...

    I would imagine that if you can plug the headphones in for the movies, you can do the same for the music channel as well. The crew probably assumes that people will play with the buttons on the armrest and discover what you found as well. And if you asked, they'd probably tell you.
    If only more Canadian flights had this sort of thing as opposed to being force-fed what they want you to hear. The biggest treat I ever got on a flight was a United flight that gave not only a choice of music, but a choice of films as well. Now that's a bonus... got to watch "Shine a Light", the Rolling Stones film. Beats the heck out of "Marley and Me" again, and again, and again...

    Sorry, US Airways has done away with all onboard entertainment.

    and re: the entertainment on planes
    "i keep telling myself that (i think chadd mentioned to me before)
    airlines are in the business of getting you from point A to point B in a safe and hopefully timely manner.
    all the other stuff....the food, the movies..the tv...etc are added perks."

    Yes they do have music on the planes. There is a variety of chanels you can choose from. It is only certain aircraft that has it though. If there is an onboard movie showing chances of having music are pretty good. Also there is a chanel that you can hear all the pilot talk. I think its pretty interesting to listen to even though I have no clue of the codes and what they are saying. LOL!

    I think that may only be on Transatlantic flights. I am a Platinum Prefferred Member (80K+ miles per yr) and all of my flights (all domestic and 1 Aruba) have not had TV or Radio, since they did away with onboard entertainment last November.

    They are testing two different systems and will eventually be returning in flight entertainment systems to the aircraft.
