Lavatory availability information
A camera tracks the line in front of the lavatory to minimise waiting time by redirecting this information directly on a personal support or in flight entertainment.
Storage compartment availability information
Hostesses and passengers have the possibility to quickly visualize the remaining places in luggage compartment thanks to lights. Flight crew is provided with tablet support.
Offer a personalized service in bord
Personalized food service
With their smartphone passenger could pre-order food and berverage according to their particular preferences and regimes.
Passengers could book their seats according to their own preferences and travel needs (family, business trip, etc.).
Passengers will be able to receive customized content directly on their IFE (In Flight Entertainment) screens. Including movies of their interest or relevant advertisements – such as recommendations for concerts they might enjoy at their destination.
Easy access to personal data
Passengers will have the possibility to access their personal data from their cloud using the aircraft’s screens.
User recognition makes it possible to change the washroom environment: change of colour according to mood, according to noise, change according to design preferences.
Passenger can get information with the smart mirror and using voice control : informations about the time, the destination, the health support, get help with the assitant Eve.
Transform the space according to the uses
Passengers have the option of transforming the cabin by rotating their seats so they can talk to their neighbours.
A hybrid space
The aircraft is built to be able to transform public spaces into different spaces according to the needs of use. The plane can thus become a sports hall, a bar… open to all.

How to preserve the relationships and links between passengers and cabin crew with these new technologies?
Are on-board screens still essential for accessing services when all passengers are equipped with their personal devices?
How do you ensure flexibility in the user experience on a product with long-term investments?
How to improve the user experience in a hyper-codified environment?
