    Maybe on the VA site Diane ?

    If you are flying out from Manchester [which I believe you are], the system on board [Ruby Tuesday] allows you to play video games [I won £3 M in three attempts at Who Wants to be a Millionnaire :lol:] as well as movies and videos. "Only Fools and Horses" was on the "funny" channel when we flew out.

    Here's a list Diane. I haven't added V-port because it is very very unlikely that they are on the Manchester or Gatwick flights. I hope it's what you are looking for :D

    You are likely to see various types of entertainment system on your flight.

    Odyssey

    The Odyssey system offers 20 channels of entertainment plus much more as follows:

    10 movie channels
    2 kids channels (featuring a combination of movies and tv programming)
    8 TV channels featuring music, sport & news, comedy and kids programming plus the exclusive Virgin Travel guide
    14 audio channels ranging from soul to Classical music
    A choice of 35 Nintendo Games
    Moving Skymap display which plots the aircraft's flight path
    In-seat telephones (located on the reverse of the handset)

    The Odyssey system is on a selection of 747-400 and A340 aircraft.

    Registration Aircraft Name

    G-VAIR A340-313 Maiden Tokyo
    G-VAST 747-41R Ladybird
    G-VXLG 747-41R Ruby Tuesday
    G-VTOP 747-4Q8 Virginia Plain
    G-VELD A340-300 African Queen
    G-VFAR A340-311 Diana
    G-VHOL A340-311 Jetstreamer
    G-VSEA A340-311 Plain Sailing


    Super Nova

    The 'Nova' has 8 channels of seat back entertainment consisting of:

    Movie channels
    2 kids channels (featuring a combination of movies and tv programming)
    1 TV channel which works on a cycle basis showing a selection of current TV programming
    14 audio channels ranging from soul to Classical music
    Moving Skymap display which plots the aircraft's flight path
    Bulkhead Telephone

    The Nova system is on a selection of LGW/MAN 747-400. As these aircraft had Suite fit-outs, they got "Super Nova" (an enhanced version of Nova, but it still ain't V:port).

    Registration Aircraft Name

    G-VGAL 747-443 Jersey Girl
    G-VLIP 747-443 Hot Lips
    G-VROM 747-443 Barbarella
    G-VROS 747-443 English Rose
    G-VROY 747-443 Pretty Woman
