In-Flight Catering Delight: Re-imagining an Airline Service Trolley

Flying, nowadays, has become just a commodity than the ‘experience’ what it used to be a few years back. With the introduction of low cost carriers, cutting down cost on things that create the experience of a luxury travel method have become an innovative management technique. The goal of achieving the lowest cost of flying left no room for the experience a passenger or even a crew member gets out of flying in the aircraft.
This project looks closely at one of the aircraft interior components, an airline service trolley, which has not seen a major development over the last 30 years. The aim of this project is to enhance the functionality and the usability of the airline trolley by analysing the various issues that are present now and finding out a design opportunity in each one of them.
Together with this, enough consideration has been given for visual aesthetics as well as the experience, a passenger or a crew member gets out of the product.

    Just Brilliant! But there is no mention of distant service for the passengers sitting in the window seats.
