New and notes from around the interweb:
- Class action has been certified over Air Canada fuel surcharges but only for Quebec-based Aeroplan members who redeemed for long haul international travel between April 2012 and November 2014.
- British Airways is trialing virtual reality entertainment
From now until the end of 2019, customers travelling on select flights in First from London Heathrow to New York JFK will be able to enjoy a selection of award-winning films, documentaries and travel programmes in 2D, 3D or 360° formats.
The headsets from VR eyewear specialists, SkyLights, allow customers to fully immerse themselves in 3D view regardless of the position they are sat in. The experience even works when they are lying fully flat.
