On February 17, a passenger on a Singapore flight, Vitaly Kamluk, tweeted about a sensor on the entertainment display in front of him. Kamluk suggested the cameras could be used to spy on passengers, thus raising concerns about traveler privacy.
The entertainment systems, made by Panasonic and Thales, are fitted with cameras for seat-to-seat video conferencing. American, United, and Singapore all say they never activated the cameras and have no intentions to ever use them. If that’s the case, why install cameras?
