Air India B787s 'banned' from Japan - Business Traveller | Aviation innovations | Scoop.it

Air India is unable to fly its Dreamliners to Tokyo or Osaka because the airline failed to provide Japanese authorities with information about its B787 modifications, it is claimed.

Japanese aviation officials are said to be refusing to allow Air India to operate the aircraft until they receive a list of all modifications carried out.

This short article is about how Air India is unable to fly Dreamliners B787, to Tokyo or Osaka because the airline failed to provide Japanese authorities with the information they required about its B787. Air India planned to deploy B787 on its Delhi-Hong kong-Seoul routes from late June. Japanese officials are said to be refusing to allow Air India to operate the aircraft until Air India sends a list of modifications carried out to the Japanese airlines. Even after repeated communications Air India failed to meet the required information to be able to operate the B787. air India reported it will keep trying until Japanese officials allow the airliner to operate the B787.

This article talks about how japan is not letting air India to use a boing 787 for business. Air India has failed twice to meet the proper requirements to be able to fly the boing 787. Japan requires blueprints of the aircraft. Air India was given another chance, but failed to give the needed requirements to japan officials. Air India said that they will keep trying until the Japanese officials allow them to fly the boing 787. Air India will probably never get to fly the boing 787 without giving the Janie's officials what the required filers to fly the plane.

This article is very short, but also very detailed at the same time very detailed. It talks about the worlds to biggest airplane manufacturers fighting for control over Japan, and at the moment it looks like Airbus will take the win on this. It says how rivals Boeing have dominated airbus in the Japanese market, but Airbus has just been given a boost. On Monday, the firm announced that a major deal to sell 31 of its A350 planes to Japan Airlines. This is so major, because this is the first time that Japan airlines has ordered from airbus.

This short article is about the debut for the Dreamliner 787-9 Boeing. It literally just rolled out of the plane hangar, after being freshly painted. The new Dreamliner opened up a new source for airlines to grow routes throughout the world. The Dreamliner has fuselage stretched 20 feet. This new plane will carry 40 more passengers, and travel an additional 300 nautical miles, than similarly sized planes. Also this plane will use 20 percent less fuel, and 20 percent less fuel use. The 787-9 offers the same visionary experience as the 787-8, just better mechanics. This Dreamliner is offering the features of dim able windows, large stow bins, modern LED lightning, cleaner air, low cabin pressure, and a smooth ride

The Dreamliner is undergoing certain improvements in its newest model, the 787-9 Dreamliner. It will have similar features, however, they will all be enhanced for the benefit of the passangers. There will be more space, 40 seats will be compunded in comparison with the 787. It will use 20 percent less fuel, making it highly fuel efficient. Its fuselage is enlarged by 20 feet and it can fly 300 additional nautical miles in comparison with similarly sized planes. Despite the alterations, the 787-9 will still keep some of the efficient and new features of its previous model, the 787. Those features, among others are the dim-able windows, LED lighting, large stow bins, low cabin pressure, and cleaner air. The new and improved Dreamliner by Boeing is very comparable to its prior model, however, the main modification is the new planes better mechanics which will decimate the number of battery or mechanical prolems that plagued the Dreamliner not so long ago.

Super-fast Wi-Fi connections for air travel potentially launching in 2014

Super-fast Wi-Fi connections for air travel potentially launching in 2014 | Aviation innovations | Scoop.it

If Ofcom’s plan comes off, travellers could be able to use Netflix, watch BBC iPlayer or download digital content using super-fast in-flight Wi-Fi connections within the next year.  

The UK communications regulator has outlined a plan for a new satellite system that would allow planes, ships and trains to have speedy Wi-Fi connections. 

Known as Earth Stations on Mobile Platforms (ESOMPs), the new system could be able to deliver Wi-Fi connections 10 times faster than any currently offered on transportation systems using high-frequency bands. 

Ofcom initiated the ESOMP consultation period last week, aiming to authorise the new system. Several satellite operators have already openly said they are planning to launch networks to support the ESOMPs within the next few months.

The ESOMPs work by connecting directly to the aircrafts when flying over the ground, but then when the plane is travelling over waters, the ESOMPs connect to the planes via satellite using a L, Ku and KA frequency band.

Ofcom has already been working with European communication watchdogs in order to synchronise the ESOMP plans across the continent.

This article is about how frequent fliers in 2014, if this works than people could be watching Netflix, BBC player, or download digital content. The UK communications regulator, has outlined a plan for a new satellite system to be used, which would allow planes, ships, and trains to have wi-fi. Known as Earth Stations on mobile platforms, the new system would bring wifi connection 10 times faster than any other currently wifi giving sources. The ESOMPS will work directly with the airplanes flying above the ground. This new system developed will not only benefit air travelers, but will also benefit people around the UK and the world. Though they maybe a few repercussions, with system failure.
