What’s new gets old, really fast
One thing is certain in the world of aircraft cabin electronics: what’s cutting edge today will be dull and discarded tomorrow. And there is little doubt that some of the technology discussed in this feature will be replaced sooner rather than later by something newer or faster or bigger with more bells and whistles.
We once thought that cabin connectivity would eventually allow a seamless transition from the home or office. But no matter how fast and how efficient cabin connectivity becomes, it looks as if it will always be a few steps behind the world beneath the wings. Only rarely is technology in a business jet cabin ahead of technology in the average electronics store, home or office.
