Which airlines charge for cross-country inflight entertainment?

Jump to last reply

We recently flew round-trip IAD-LAX on United. On the outbound trip, the B737-800 had on-demand entertainment that cost $7.99 - including, I think, audio entertainment as well as video. On the return, the Airbus had free entertainment, both audio and video. To me, it’s ridiculous that you have to pay for entertainment on a five and half hour flight. How can you tell if you’ll have to pay for entertainment on UAL flights? And do other airlines now charge for inflight entertainment on cross-country flights as well?
