UK-based airline Thomson Airways is looking at new, innovative ways to keep passengers happy.
A UK-based airline, Thomson Airways, is making plans to completely redefine the skies to make them more friendly to consumers. The airline is throwing around a number of ideas to encourage passengers to fly in a newly defined way of comfort.
One of the promo photos released by Thomson Airways is family booth seating at the back of the plane, where parents will sit face-to-face with their children. If parents aren’t looking forward to a long flight with their children, Thomson is also planning on board childcare.
The airline is also looking at a zoning structure for the airplane, which would include kid-free zone. Anybody who has ever been on a flight that included a crying baby, or in my case, a child who spits on you, knows that this could be a very welcoming luxury to business travelers and frequent flyers. This zone would also include a snack bar.
The airline is also looking at “couple pods”, which include two comfortable seats and mood lighting, as well as a table between the two.
The airline is also looking at including other on board services, which would include a concierge that would give advice to travelers on their destination. In flight services would allow passengers to make last-minute changes to air and hotel reservations.
Thomson Airways is the third biggest airline in the United Kingdom. They are seeking new and innovative ways to configure their new fleet of 47 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft that it has ordered.
These sound like some pretty awesome and innovative plans for the airline. It will be very interesting to see how many of these passenger services it will be able to bring on board and what the cost associated with using them will be.
