No Noisy Children: Skyscanner Reveals Most
Wanted Features of Dream Aircraft
PR Newswire

/PRNewswire/ --
The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which is set to fly from
Tokyo
to
Singapore
this September with other Asian routes to follow soon after, brings with it a
variety of new features to improve the on-board experience. Following this
news, a new survey of over 1000 passengers by leading global flight search site
Skyscanner reveals what people actually want to find on their dream aircraft.
Although the single most requested feature was capsule-style bunks (taking
20% votes), 26% of people wanted facilities to reduce noise and annoyance
caused by flying families with sound-proof sections for children and kick-proof
seats taking second and third spots.
Assisting passengers in their quest for relaxation, 'massaging chairs' took the
fourth spot followed by 'Free use of iPads', perhaps inspired by Asian budget
airline Scoot who now offer free iPad hire to Business Class customers.
A singles section, where unattached passengers could potentially meet, flirt and
chat at 30,000 feet came surprisingly high on the list while nearly one in 20
respondents voted for transparent floors and ceilings while an in-flight cinema
and cocktail bar also came in the top 10.
Skyscanner's Director for
Asia Pacific
, Ewan Gray said:
"As a parent, I've flown with my one-year old child long-haul between
Skyscanner's offices in
Edinburgh
and
Singapore
and can understand the stress
that travelling with children can bring for both the parents themselves and
others seated around them, and so I'm not surprised that sound-proof sections
and anti-kick seats score so highly on the list. It's just a shame that for most of
us flying economy class these luxury features will have to remain a dream".
