Did you know cameras exist in some airline seatback entertainment systems? I’m not a hyper-private person, but I certainly don’t want the airlines secretly watching me. What if the camera was hacked? Amid these privacy concerns, senators are asking why cameras exist at all.
Some airlines have started placing tape over the cameras. Others claim that they have never been functional, and that Panasonic Avionics added them without asking.
We do not buy the explanation that the airline is the innocent victim here.
