The Aircraft Interiors Expo

At this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo, we walked the floor to see some of the new and interesting items that will make it into aircraft in the next few years. We sat in the newest seats, used the newest inflight entertainment systems, and learned about the future of inflight WiFi.

Jason got a first hand look at Bombardier’s newest CS300 when airBaltic’s YL-CSC landed in Hamburg with only 30 flight hours. The CS300 is leading the way in cabin comfort and other seat manufacturers are following suit in making seats wider, especially for short-haul flights.

We also got a first hand look at Lufthansa Technik’s induction cooking system, which allows food to be cooked, instead of just reheated, on board the aircraft. When it comes to cleaning up the dishes, we got a demo of the GermFalcon, a new system for sanitizing aircraft.

We also heard about some of the news from the show that will make connecting to in-flight WiFi even easier on new planes.
