We live in an age where saving time is more important than saving money. Perhaps this is why air transport, previously exclusively for the extremely wealthy or emergency, is now being used in conjunction with its competitors, that is, rail and road transport. The number of passengers flying over the past few decades has multiplied and the count is still growing. A few decades ago, only mature, developed and wealthy countries such as the United States, European countries, Japan Aponia, Singapore, etc., were those that had air links to major domestic cities and also to international destinations. But now, the number of states connected by air has grown sharply, and that has not stopped there. Internal air communication has also been muddied, connecting many cities in different cities. Not only developed and rich countries, but also developing countries such as China, India and Brazil, etc., have benefited greatly from the growth of air connectivity. Not only has the connection improved, but also the experience of traveling by air has improved. Let's look at aspects that have changed significantly over the last few decades.
Ling travel time
Air travel, which has been the fastest mode of transport since its inception, has become more and more acute over time. There has been a flight from the Australian subsystem to London and is still known as one of the longest flights to date. In the late 1950s Sydney and London connected cities with Australia's Qantas Airways. Then the trip was a 4-day voyage, with a huge 55 hours in the air, and the flight touched the ground outside Sydney and London in six places. The airline is still moving between countries, but in a different way. New Kangaroo Route 2018, as Qantas Airways calls it, connects Perth to London without stopping or touching anywhere else. The live flight takes 17 hours, covering over 9,000 miles in one landing.
It is even the longest in the air or the longest distance covered in one place. As the planes became more efficient and technologically advanced, even longer air travel and travel became possible. Another Qatar Airlines flight between Auckland and Doha is now the longest flight, penetrating a staggering 9025 miles on one route (or flight), lasting 16-18 hours in the air. Imagine passengers stuck in their seats for a long time.
There is a reason that the early flight period was called the "Golden Age" & # 39; Flight For the price that passengers paid for the trip at that time, they were compensated by the food and drinks provided during the trip. But the airlines had a number of issues to resolve. The flyers of the early 1920s had to deal with weight issues when there were times when passengers were weighed before sailing. The same rule applied to food that restricted the amount of food being transported to the sky. As the planes got better and traveled longer, the food got better and warmer. Food was more than just survival. Flights from the early 1930s had kitchens that could provide hot meals and a dining room where passengers would gather and feast in the air. Then, in the 1940's, came the era of frozen food, which provided a variety of meals in the sky. As the planes grew, the number of passengers flying increased and air curtains were also increased. But now personalization has become more important than offering a single exotic meal to a group of passengers. Currently, airlines allow passengers to order food of their choice, which is delivered immediately to their seats before departure. For example, iFLEAT is a mobile service that delivers passenger-ordered food directly from their restaurant. The service is now affiliated with Air Berlin and plans to collaborate with more airlines in the future. Although airline caterers will feel the impact of this service, it is a win-win situation for travelers as one gets to eat one and alternative meals, as well as for airlines, as they may retain their customers by letting them do what they want. :
Fun and connection during the flight
A recent airline passenger survey found that Wi-Fi was more important than food for air travelers. This shows how much people are connected to the Internet. And even airlines try to retain existing customers and attract more customers by providing them with entertainment and communication. Many airlines already offer Wi-Fi in at least some of their flights, but travelers have had to buy the service. Airlines provide free internet only to first class travelers. Big names in the aviation industry, such as Etihad, Finnair, Lufthansa, etc., provide internet access to all its fleets or parts of it, but to the passenger. On the other hand, there are few other people, including Emirates, Turkish Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines, etc., which provide free Wi-Fi access to its passengers. There are many travelers out there praying that this will happen to all airlines, and I also hope that it will happen soon. By 2035, the number of travelers is expected to more than double, according to market research firm Airlines, which will make far more changes to attract new passengers and retain carriers.
