Airlines showed off their new passenger comforts at the Airline Interior Expo held in Hamburg, Germany, earlier this month.
One of the biggest highlights of the show was the unveiling of the new cabin area for the Airbus a350. At a minidesk in the business corner, a passenger can get the same connectivity as on the ground. The Airbus a350 will be able to seat more than 300 passengers in three levels when it takes off in 2010.
