New York flights are really great, with a touchscreen based, well laid out
navigation system.

They are featuring (audio and) video-on-demand unlike the earlier services /
others that provide broadcasts and result into your missing one show or the
other.  The response times are very quick.

On my last flight home, they had some problem due to which screens in some
parts of the aircraft did not work, forcing them to reboot the system a
couple of times.  The boot up time wasn't so slow, but I found that they
were using something based on RHEL.
