Innovation and Inspiration
There are so many airlines all over the world and there are so many interesting upcoming projects. I made a list of 5 very cool airlines you have to keep an eye on it.
1: Virgin America Airline
Did you know that there is an Airline Company based in Silicon Valley? It is – Virgin America. They are innovative thinker. For example: they asked 30 frequent flyer to help to improve the Airline and generating new ideas. It worked out. Some of the ideas you will find already when you fly with Virgin America.
Do you want to flirt with someone on another row? No problem you can connect with other seats by sending them a drink or a snack. It’s called “Seat to Seat Service”. According to a study almost 45% admit to flirting mid-air. 😉
You should also watch the airline’s in-flight safety (music) video. It is great. This Airline is definitely something special and absolutely an “out of the box thinker”. I’m so looking forward what will come next.
2: Air New Zealand
Air New Zealand wins (almost) every year the price for the best Premium Economy Class and best Economy Class. They have the award-winning Skycouch. It is a row of three Economy seats that together create a flexible space. It’s perfect for Families or couples. If you are lucky and you have the other two seats free – yay. Perfect flight I would say, totally relax.
3: Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways is always on the hunt for innovations. Economy Seat with a form “wing” for the head. Business Class Seats with soft, supple Poltrona Frau leather. There is so much space that you can eat and leave your laptop open. The First Apartments are incredible. It seems more like a private jet.
4: Qatar Airways
The A350 XWB form Qatar Airways travels at a fast cruise speed of Mach 0.85 and has the lowest carbon emissions. Panoramic windows with electromechanical shades, wider cabins, seats that reclines to an 80% fully bed. Even on Economy class there are much wider seats and 4 way adjustable headrest.
5; Singapore Airlines
Singapore Airlines are all known in the branch for their innovations. They were the first airline that offered drinks and food in the economy class. With the A350 they will bring back the world’s longest flights resuming non-stop flights between Singapore and New York. Johnnie Walker Blue Label The Casks Edition is exclusive designed for SIA. The design is based on the airline’s cabin crew uniform. You will find the widest touchscreen – about 13.3-inch full HD in the Premium Economy Class of Singapore Airlines.
There are so many airlines to watch because everybody wants to propose their customers more service and more innovation. I will keep an eye on that and let you know if there are other cool or interesting airlines.
