Yesterday we focused on the annoyances that can come with modern air travel, but in many ways flying is a better experience now than at any other time in history. Better yet, airline manufacturers, carriers, and other companies continue to think of innovative ways to improve the in-flight experience.
One exciting development in air travel rolling out in 2016 is the release of new planes from Airbus and Boeing, the A350 and the 787-9 dreamliner. These massive beauties are being fitted with gorgeous new interiors and in-flight entertainment systems by airlines, and they’re significantly better for the environment than older planes.
Another thing American passengers can look forward to is improved Wi-Fi service on flights. U.S. carriers already have the best Wi-Fi in the world, and in 2016 U.S. airplane Wi-Fi will get even better. Higher-speed connections will enable passengers to use popular media streaming services in-flight.
Finally, here’s a tech advance that won’t do much for the in-flight experience, but will dramatically improve traveling overall: starting in 2016, airports and airlines will comprehensively upgrade their baggage tracking technology to make sure you bags get to your destination at the same time you do. That’ll be a relief!
