Do you think that Aviation is going uphill or downhill? Where was it? Where will Aviation be in the future?
I think that it depends. As far as innovation goes, Aviation will never go down, and we’re at an all time high. As far as expirience? I think that as Airlines get more money centered, no matter how cool the plane, IFE, etc. passengers will never be satisfied. As far as I’m aware, back in the 50’s - 70’s, there was a magic in flying. Passengers were dumbstruck by the airplane. The airlines actually CARED for their passengers! (I know because I’ve listened to my grandparents stories) (As far as I’m concerned, no one, not even Emirates, probably cares. The owners all just want the money!) So, moving on, I think in the future, Airlines will learn their lessons and actually care for the passengers again. The aircraft will get cheaper, safer, more friendly… to the pilots, passengers, and environment. Safety right now is at an all-time high. I believe it will stay that way until cars leave the ground and idiots not paying attention hit a commercial jet or something. Hopefully that won’t happen for a while though.
What do you think? Are we going down or up? I think we’re going up overall, but aviation is still not its best of days. We’ll see how this all works out.
