I’ve been in blogging withdrawal all week, as I went about the necessary business of covering the ISTAT conference in Phoenix, which was, without a doubt, one of the best conferences I’ve had the pleasure of attending in a very long while.
We’ll have lots more to discuss from Phoenix in the coming days (such as the massive funding gap that could result in order delays and cancellations, which in turn would result in fewer new IFE-equipped birds), but here is a dandy of a pic of a Boeing slide from the show. It’s Boeing’s ideas for future aircraft configurations.
Now, before we get too excited, these are just “cartoons” of possibilities, not drawing-board stuff, said Boeing commercial airplanes director of marketing Drew Magill at the conference. That fast one is just my cup of tea, however.
