I have been thinking of potential innovative ways to improve still further the enjoyment and practicality of flying. So far, we have a variety of things, such as in-flight Internet and telephones, flat beds, 'stary night effect' (with EK), and in-flight bars (with VS, I believe). Would in-flight showers, or an alternative, ever be possible (on a corporate plane, including the BBJ and 319CJ, if not a regular commercial aircraft)? What other potential new things could be developed?

LOL.

What else does VS have aboard? Some form of nail treatment room or beauty room or whatever?

Haha. Yeah, yeah.

Are the tray tables normally sufficiently large, in the average economy cabin, to comfortable use a laptop and to generally do business work?

Personally, I wish the long-haul planes (777, 747) had individual climate control like the domestic planes. I sweated like a pig in Club World on my way to London, and the FA refused to lower the temperature. I even tried reasoning with her saying that the other people could put on more clothing and blankets, whereas I could only remove so much before they had to have me arrested upon arrival. Thank goodness for the showers in the Terraces Lounge at LHR. Otherwise, my seatmates on my way to DOH would have had some nastiness to put up with.

Quoting Brokenrecord (Reply 5):
individual climate control

Do you think the twist-the-nossle-for-air idea is sufficiently effective for individual climate control?

What do A.netters reckon to EK's 'stary night' concept? What research has been done on this, in terms of getting a better night's sleep and in combating/reducing jetlag? Is this concept currently only in EK's premium cabins?

To what extent do airlines invest in R&D?

Russian roullete airline style: At low altitude open the 2 forward exits (R and L) and have 2 people start pushing each other. First person to get pushed out loses.

It helps significantly, but at least on BA, they are not present on the 747 and 777.
