Airbus Demonstrates Concept Plane For Year 2050

Airbus has an awesome new concept plane that it hopes will be in wide-scale production and use by the year of 2050. While we can’t estimate ticket prices, we can give you a few clues on what we may see in the upcoming decades.

New Airport Security Checkpoint Of The Future

The International Air Transport Association came forth with a mock up of a future security checkpoint system.

Passengers will be sorted according to risk, and those who fly frequently will be automatically deemed less risky. No clue on whether racial profiling will play into who gets chosen for the high-risk passengers (those who pose a threat), but supposedly the system takes in a wide variety of factors when deciding.
