#PaxEx TV: Voice Calls, Premium Seat Stalls and #AvGeek Fun


Welcome to #PaxEx TV. On this our latest episode we look at why the debate over allowing passengers to make cell phone calls in-flight is heating up again; whether we’re seeing the first meaningful push for airlines to be more transparent about the size of their seats during the booking process; and what is driving demand for Premium Economy seats.

We descend on Hamburg for the city’s Airport Days celebration, which attracts big crowds each year, including many folks who identify as #AvGeeks.

And we visit Lufthansa Technik’s mammoth maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in the German city, where RGN correspondent Maryann Simson learns how the company plans to spend EUR 200 million between now and 2018.
