Airplane cabin designers works not only with the allocation of budgets as needed, but also with physics laws when designing the design to make traveling on board a passenger plane.
Kondo is one of the airplane designers who offered an interview for the Independent. He says, “I often joke when I say I was raised in a Boeing 747-200.” He believes the golden age of the airplane is coming, and technological upgrades that will change our lives and travel will take place in the next few years.
Imagine you are boarding on a plane and the seat recognizes you, remembers exactly who you are, what comfortable position you prefer and gives you your favorite playlist, configured on your own home device, watching what you like.
In the future, airlines intend to use wi-fi on the plane. And yet, Kondo thinks it’s not the best thing, because now the people has time to eat, read a magazine, watch an uninterrupted film, socialize. Wi-Fi will only isolate passengers one from each other.
And yet, he says, “In a dream world, each passenger in the plane would have its own mini cabin as a small hotel.” It’s more complete that each has different cabin sizes to meet all requirements, such as, for example, large cabins for families. The cabin would be equipped with everything that would be necessary, if there were different social areas, there would be a place for meals. The similarity would be similar to that of a luxury cruise on the sea or on international railways.
And yet, we are still far from the Orient Express experience in the air. First of all, in order for these issues to be possible, it must be technically feasible to make them viable. And yet, airplane designers are convinced that the digital revolution will create customized spaces for each passenger.
Yet, flying by plane has become extremely affordable today for many people, as only 50 years ago could fly the extremely wealthy. Today, airplane flight is for everyone, so nowadays we find it luxuriant and hardly accessible, tomorrow can turn into a normal.
