Episode 011: Interiors Explosion and Loyalty Erosion

Rotation

Greetings from the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany. And welcome to Episode 011 of the #PaxEx Podcast.

In this episode we discuss Gogo’s novel new global Ku-band connectivity service – dubbed 2Ku – for airlines (the full details of which were released today – one day after our recording).

We also look at the mega aircraft interiors boon occurring in the aviation industry as a result of bulging aircraft order books, and talk about why this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo is bigger and better than ever.

But can the interiors sector keep pace with demand, especially demand for customized seats and galleys? Aircraft leasing giant Steven Udvar-Hazy recently flagged up his own concerns. We discuss what’s happening, and what can be done.

Finally, Seth Miller has written a killer piece about loyalty cuts. We ask him why being loyal to ourselves – over airlines – might make sense for infrequent travelers.
