British Airways Cabin Crew, Testing the iPad 2

British Airways are gearing up for the future, as they replace paper formats with tablet PCs for their cabin crew.

According T3, the British Airways is switching from paper format to digital by equipping its cabin crew with tablet PCs. They are testing Apple’s iPad 2 which provides seating layout, profiles or special food requests.

The iPad 2 in testing have specialized software that shows the passenger manifest. It displays the seating layout, the place of each passenger, special dietary requirements, and live customer service update. Moreover, the passenger information will be updated in real time — even during the flight. Apple iPad 2 also displays timetables and safety manuals, making the cabin crew’s work easier.

As of the moment, the British Airways’ project is still in trial phase with 100 staff testing it. However, all 1,800 senior cabin crew would be getting the tablets in the months to come.
