New Sleds Available Beginning August 14, 2017

Date: August 4, 2017
Type: AFA Article

For some time now, AFA has been advocating for improvements to the process of replacing inoperative sled devices for use with our Link devices.  Slow turnaround time in the repair and the unreliable operation of the devices have both contributed to the shortage.  We are pleased to learn management has responded to our ongoing advocacy. The company has purchased more than 5,000 new sleds, with enhanced reliability, in an effort to improve the delayed wait times for replacement units.   Effective August 14, 2017, Inflight Services is expecting to have these replacement sleds available for distribution. 

If you currently have an inoperative sled, first contact Link Support. If it is determined via troubleshooting that your sled is indeed inoperative the Support team will provide replacement instructions. For additional information, please contact your Local Council Office.
