- Air New Zealand is exploring how the Microsoft HoloLens can enhance its in-flight service, becoming the first airline to openly consider equipping its cabin crew with the augmented reality headset.
- Leanne Langridge, general manager of the airline’s cabin crew, said AR presents another way to better tailor their service.
- Air New Zealand hired UK-based software firm Dimension Data to create the concept app.
- AR does offer new ways for flight attendants to predict their passengers’ needs, but fliers could feel uncomfortable with a headset-equipped cabin steward staring at them and their customer info.
- You can watch the concept video from Air New Zealand below.
