January 28, 2019 / FIRDAUS HASHIM

Qantas has detailed requests from passengers as part of its research into its plan to launch ultra-long-haul flights to Europe and the United States in 2022, dubbed 'Project Sunrise'.The research, done in conjunction with the Sydney University's Charles Perkins Centre, found that health and wellness were the consistent trend from its research, with a focus on mindfulness and a "separation of experience" during different stages of a long-haul flight.The top five suggestions made by passengers include providing a "sense of separation" experiences, space to conduct exercises, wireless noise cancelling headsets, innovative cabin designs on the aircraft with a focus on traveler needs, as well as an in-flight cafe.
