Initially it was just passengers getting access to in-flight entertainment in the form of all those tablet devices, but slowly we’ve seen the technology find its way into the hands of cabin crews as well. From pilots to flight attendants it seems like everyone is getting in on the touch-screen fun, and now it looks like another airline is doing the same.
Emirates has just plunked down a chunk of change for a whole bunch of HP ElitePad 900 tablets. These will be powered by Windows 8 and should be arriving up in the air at sometime in January—they’re kind of like on backorder. The airline says that the new tablets will be loaded up with what they call KIS—or Knowledge Driven In-Flight Services. This provides all kinds of tidbits of information based on the airline, on the flights, the passengers, and pretty much everything else.
