3 Links I Love: Comet Across the Atlantic, Overhead Bin Sensors, A380 in Trouble

This week’s featured link:

I was invited to join this event in London by BA, but I wasn’t able to go.  (There was a lot of cool stuff this week, and I wouldn’t do any of it.)  Here’s a little bit of coverage from Airways.

I wasn’t at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) Expo in Boston this year, but Seth pulled out a few of the cool things.  I like the overhead bin sensors.

Well that can’t be good news for Airbus, though I imagine they’ll all come to a deal at some point and Airbus will just give a big discount.

There doesn’t seem a need for the A380, and if it wasn’t for EK I bet it would have been gone already or never started.

When I saw the headline about overhead bin sensors, I thought it would either be something like the lights you see in parking garages, identifying available spaces, or something ULCCs could use to catch customers using the bin when they hadn’t paid for it.

Both, one suspects, more likely to appeal to many airline managements.
