It's not uncommon to hear of people being nervous about flying in an airplane. Even if a passenger knows that their pilot has a good flying record, passengers can still feel uneasy about the experience.
Vietnam Airlines and Boeing are combining forces to update the cabin interiors and modernize four of the airline's 777-200ERs. The improved passenger experience may be enough to calm the most edgy passengers.
The renovations will include installing new seats, upgrading the in-flight entertainment system as well as the cabin cooling systems.
Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of fleet services Dennis Floyd says the company is looking forward to helping upgrade the aircrafts.
"As the original designer and builder of the 777, Boeing is proud to be selected by Vietnam Airlines for this important interior upgrade program. Boeing is uniquely positioned with experience and expertise to engineer, certify and manage modification programs for our customers," said Floyd. "This interior upgrade will support Vietnam Airlines' aggressive plan to continue to compete among the world's leading carriers."
Vietnam Airlines will have to work aggressively to compete for customers in the competitive airline business. Many passengers are looking for the right combination of price, comfort, safety and service.
