available on 60 Airbus planes.
Red Sox fans shouldn't feel let down, though. New England-based
JetBlue Airways (well, Queens, NY... but the Mets aren't in
the Series) will also show World Series games on its planes... and
that carrier doesn't charge for the service.
That could make for some animated conversations among

it sends those fliers to partner AirTran Airways -- but JetBlue
does offer direct service between the two cities.
