These graphical moving maps that show you where you are and how fast you’re going and at what altitude, they’re nice and all. But the only thing I really care about it how long time there is till we’re on the ground again. And that information only flashes once every 5 minutes or so, if you’re lucky. So if you’re trying to catch some sleep, it’s really hard to get at that information. Especially since I use my cell phone as my watch normally, and airlines tend to be less than fond of cell phones.
What I really want is a large LED alarm clock style display, separate from the in-flight entertainment system that just shows the number of hours and minutes estimated until touch-down. Please?
