Hello… just out of curiosity—why does airlines no longer put flight trackers on their screens?
I flew Air Canada Montreal-Toronto-Santiago de Chile-Buenos Aires a month ago and returned EZE-SCL-CYYZ-CYUL as of two weeks ago, and on none on the flight to and back had any flight trackers on board the seat screens they had.
On those touch-screens, what they had working were movies and some TV stuff, but not much else, not even TVnews worked.
I am hearing-impaired so I get a bit anxious when I can’t understand what they’re saying on the announcements, and I cringe, thinking the pilots may be telling us something like: we have a problem or something of the kind… let me tell you I have had quite a scare with a lot of nighttime turbulence from Toronto to Santiago, and I was sooo praying a lot all night long and did not sleep a wink on the flight.
The flight back was almost much the same. I wish airlines had at least written anouncements on the touch screens (or closed captions at least) so that the hearing-impaired can at least know what’s going on, don’t you all think? I also had to make the flight attendant switch my seat with another customer because I needed to have a seat where I can see when the “seat-belt” sign was on, as not many other seats had the illuminated signs, and I cannot understand/hear it when they announce it anyway.
My husband is flying home tomorrow, I hope he arrives complete in one piece and he has much a smoother flight than mine was.
