Travel woes begone! Planes of the future bring luxury back to the skies!
Social media continues to alter the way we consume information. Breaking news on Facebook and Twitter, gathering intel on Instagram–social media’s influence has no bounds. Using these techniques, Aircraft manufacturer Airbus scoured social media for concerns, complaints and airline comparisons from frequent travelers. The company used the feedback to create its latest airplane model, Airspace. Some complaints included insufficient overhead space, a lack of broadband service, lackluster lighting and less-than-stellar lavatories. The result? A state-of-the-art cabin that gives travelers a lot more SPACE.
“Airspace is how Airbus will brand its interiors from now on,” explains vice president of strategy and marketing Dr. Kiran Rao. “We want passengers to get on and think ‘This is an Airspace cabin’.” Check out their video below!
And what can customers expect from the new interiors? Increased overhead space and wider seats–18 inches will be the economy seat standard, which is a first of its kind. Additionally, Airspace will provide a quieter cabin, a lavatory with antibacterial surfaces, built-in broadband for easy Internet access and a fourth generation in-flight entertainment system available at every seat.
