New economy seats ‘invade personal space’
By Chris Haslam
In design terms it’s a stroke of genius, but a new airline seating configuration, packing economy passengers head-to-toe, seems unlikely to catch on with the travelling public.
With a concept inspired more by Cannery Row than Heathrow, leading airline seat designers Acumen and Premium Aircraft Interiors Group (PAIG) — responsible for first- and business-class cabin designs in some of the world’s leading airlines — will on Tuesday unveil Freedom, their vision of the economy cabin of the future. Gone are the familiar rows of forward-facing seats, replaced by ranks of alternating fore- and aft-facing seats.

EU to enforce flight compensation
The loophole that allows airlines to avoid compensating passengers whose flights have been cancelled will be closed within six months, the European Commission has said.

Under “denied boarding” regulatiosn introduced in February 2005, airlines must compensate passengers denied access to aircraft, or whose flights have been delayed or cancelled. An EU report published last November, however, revealed that since the introduction of the regulation, airlines have exploited the excuse of “extraordinary circumstances” and avoided payouts by citing matters beyond their control, such as weather, strikes and technical malfunctions.

BA ‘Worst airline in Europe for losing luggage’
BA ‘Worst airline in Europe for losing luggage’
By David Millward Transport Correspondent and Paula Sheppard
British Airways loses more luggage than any other European airline, it emerged yesterday.
As millions of people start packing to leave for the Easter holiday, a survey showed BA mislaid more bags than any of its European rivals – losing 23 bags per 1,000 passengers last year.
BA blames its problems on a 25 per cent rise in check-in luggage as a result of restrictions on carry-on bags introduced in August and says steps are being taken to improve performance.
According to the Association of European Airlines survey, 5.6 million bags were “mishandled” by 24 European carriers in 2006.
