Airlines that throttled back on cabin product innovation and development in the economic downturn are now taking a sharp look at how to bolster in-flight services while also improving their bottom lines. Their renewed interest comes at a pivotal time for the in-flight entertainment and connectivity industry. Technology has advanced to the point where IFE&C stakeholders are able to finally deliver the type of reliable, sophisticated systems airlines have long craved. Interiors specialists are also benefiting from new business. With the industry descending on Long Beach, California next week for the Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas and Airline Passenger Experience Group exhibitions, one thing is sure - when it comes to the passenger experience, the sky is the limit.
