Direct flights Paris to Miami - individual TV screens

I'm flying with 3 children Paris to Miami and saw that AirFrance (who we normall fly) uses 747-400s, which don't have individual TV screens on the seats (a savoir for our kids).
Anyone know which airline does? I am thinking American Airlines' 767s would, but maybe not.
Thanks

Unfortunately, AA's 767s don't have personal video in economy, only "main screen."

British Airways and Swiss do, but that would mean a connection.

AA 777s have individual screens.

Unfortunately, AA doesn't have any 777s scheduled for MIA-CDG during 2011.

On some of these new notepad computers, the battery goes for over seven hours.

check www.seatguru.com. It lists, by airline, the type of plane and equipment for each.

I also had a similar concern - for me, it isn't the flight over to Europe, its the flight home during daylight hours. On the way over, the kids get no entertainment - no books, no videos, no music, no games - they pull up the hood on their sweatshirt and settle down. They've done great so far - although last time it helped that it was 2 hours past their bedtime that the flight took off.

For me, it was the flight home - my littlest surf, watched the individual map for a long time - about 2-3 hours. He liked watching the screen flip between the large map, the small map, and the flight details. For that reason (and others) we are flying A330's.
