I am interested in writing a paper on an emerging trend in IT in the airline industry. Does any one have any ideas of any IT ideas currently in the commercial aviation world that sound like a good idea?

See my old thread on the CUPPS model. What Is Cupps (by Nuggetsyl Nov 16 2009 in Civil Aviation) A lot of the processes in airline IT have been around forever and are well developed. CUPPS is kind of neat in that it provides common-use computer terminals used for passenger check-in. With the advent of cheap modern PCs this is possible.

There's lots of work to be done in e-enabling the airplanes...the engine makers started working this first with real-time monitoring for their power-by-the-hour contracts, now both Airbus and Boeing (and maybe the others, I'm not sure) have the airplanes networked pretty much all the time.
