    The Airline Fleet Modernization editorial package in this issue is packed with  technology, operations and business features that provide insights into what operators are planning—and what innovative companies will be providing.


    Take inflight entertainment. IFE is changing so rapidly—how are airlines keeping up? Passengers demand connectivity onboard—we show you the latest trends and what IFE providers are pitching to airlines who are trying to satisfy tech savvy customers.


    We also look at cockpit upgrades and what airlines are trying to figure out for NextGen capabilities. How can they install the equipage and minimal costs, and how does this link with their heavy maintenance plans?


    iPads appear in more cockpits and the cabin. What’s next for these devices?


    Of course, we’re also talking to airlines around the world about their fleet strategies. We look at how they are preparing for next-gen aircraft, what service and support changes they will need for operations, as well as what technology upgrades and performance updates they want.  


    RICH MEDIA extras! Check out the digital edition for informative graphics on NextGen and to see a video from London City airport.
