Google is trying its best to make Google Glass look normal. Not everyone is still sold on the device and its potential. Virgin Atlantic is going to give it a try anyway. Its staff will be using Google Glass to pull up all sorts of information o npassengers. The program will run for 6 weeks and will apply only to premium-class passengers.
While it’s fantastic that more people can now fly than ever before, the fact that air travel has become so accessible has led to some of the sheen being lost for many passengers. Our wearable technology pilot with SITA makes us the first in the industry to test how Google Glass and other wearable technology can improve the customer experience. We are upholding Virgin Atlantic’s long tradition of shaking things up and putting innovation at the heart of the flying experience,
explained Dave Bulman, Director of IT, Virgin Atlantic. How passengers will react to such a move will be interesting. But there is no doubt wearable devices such as Google Glass can make life easier for folks working in this industry.
