Eastern Airlines selects Thomas Global’s TFD-7000 series flight deck displays for Boeing 767 fleet upgrade

Wayne, Pennsylvania-based Eastern Airlines has chosen Thomas Global’s TFD-7000 Series plug-and-play LCD flight deck displays for its Boeing 767 fleet. Deliveries to Eastern Airlines are underway.

TFD-7000 Series displays offer a lighter, more reliable, and cost-effective replacement for legacy CRTs, with added functionality and capacity for current and emerging airspace requirements. Thomas Global’s innovative plug-and-play LCD technology enables installation on overnights or at the gate, with no flight or maintenance crew retraining required.

“The TFD-7000 Series is the optimum solution to modernize our 767 flight displays without major flight deck modifications, aircraft downtime or crew retraining,” said Eastern Airlines Vice President, Maintenance & Engineering, Eric Couvreur. “Further, the TFD-7000 provides a practical solution to our issues around CRT obsolescence, while achieving significantly greater display system reliability.”
