THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY : most lovingly and respectfully called, !WOW!, the exclusive ownership of every single student in the universe-

Wishes everybody a great and a solemn, Eid. The World Students Society prays for peace and prosperity and dignity for Mankind. 

So on the future of Flying, we stop to see, if we can catch an early glimpse in the mockup at Rockwell Collins in North Carolina, where interior systems designer are using virtual reality to find and fix mistakes before a design is done.

''Designs ''fail quicker and cheaper''...................

Consider that airline pilots do recurrent training in a simulator on a regular basis, bringing a simulated setting to other areas of the industry is not a new concept.

It is only recently, however, that the improved quality and lower cost of virtual reality have made its widespread use practical.

With all the showy advantage of virtual reality, some airlines are trying to turn the ''wow'' into revenue. At a pop up cafe in London earlier this month, Air Canada invited visitors to watch a  Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight in virtual reality.

The German airline Lufthansa prepared a 360 video of the interior of its long-haul aircraft, and its employees presented viewing goggles to ticketed passengers waiting at boarding gates in Newark and Frankfurt last year.

After watching the show, Lufthansa asked if they wanted to purchase an upgrade to a premium economy seat.

''How can you communicate a travel product?  This is the problem in the industry,'' said Torsten Wingenter, Lufthansa's senior director of digital innovations.

Virtual reality gave the company the ''first chance to show the product in an emotional way.''

After the test, the emotion at the airline can be described a happy. A number of economy passengers paid $299 more to fly in premium economy after viewing the cabin in virtual reality. Mr. Winenter would not say how many, but that it was ''a significant number.''


In December, Lufthansa passengers flying out  Los Angeles  will be able to use what Jet Blue customers in Boston are already using   -boarding gates  that let passengers onto the airplane with no paper ticket or electronic boarding pass, just a face that matches their passport photos.

On two Jet Blue routes, from Boston to Aruba and the Dominican Republic, passengers stand in front of a camera that take their picture and compares with the travelers image in the passport database of  Customs and Border Protection.

''We're seeing about three seconds for the photograph to be taken, transmitted and a positive response back,'' said Jonna Geraghty, Jet Blues executive vice president of customer experience.

Facial recognition will be expanded. Ms. Geraghty said this was the beginning of a new era for travelers.

''You can go into an airport, and you won't need to shoe a boarding card, you won't need to pull a passport,'' she said. ''There will be no bag tag, no lines, you almost walk right onto an aircraft. That's the world I look forward to.''


Ms. Geraghty is like many aviation technology specialists who look at developments in other industries and think about how they could improve air travel.

In a workshop in Geneva, SITA has several robots that travel to industry conferences around the world to start conversations about how autonomous vehicles may be used in aviation.

One robot, named Kate, is a self-directed check-in-kiosk that moves to areas of congestion as needed. the other robot, Leo, takes bags from passengers and deposits them where they are need to be to get sent to the right destination.

Whether Kate or Leo end up at your local airport is not the point, said Mr. Peters, SITA's technology chief.

''The robots are also demonstrators to get people talking about what is the future of autonomous vehicles in the airport,'' Mr. Peters said. But for all that technology has to offer, one of the most important tests how well the next new gadget plays with people.

''Some things can be prototyped and some things can't,'' he said. ''Somethings you have to have a physical interaction with to figure out what works.'' 

With respectful dedication to the Aviation experts, Aeronautical Engineers, and Avionics masters, and then Teachers, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. And with special dedication to Student Shyaan Hassnain Ahmad, A-Levels/Roots.
