As Solar Impulse Heads for Seville, SITAONAIR Keeps It On Track

I had the privilege last week to visit the Mission Control Centre in Monaco and learned how SITA OnAir technology is used to monitor every element of the flight, from flight path, to pilot health, weather monitoring, communications, aircraft performance..you name it.

Let’s Not Waste an Opportunity to Carry-On after IATA Carry-On Controversy

  • 5 min read

I spent a bit of time this month writing about IATA’s proposed ‘Cabin OK’ program: introducing it, clearing up misconceptions, and, finally, reporting on its demise, er, “pause.”

This is the second of two posts today, which review the Cabin OK aftermath. I promise to let the matter drop after that.

I must say I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a general uproar brought about by a single proposal by IATA, or airlines in general.

Now that the hullabaloo has all but subsided, I’d like to highlight the positive side of all of this–power to the people–and some opportunities to get really riled up, which we should not let pass us by.
