Engineering solutions firm Altran has demonstrated its vision of a digital future for aviation which includes better cabin environments with a quick flick of the wrist. Altran’s digital Center of Excellence Cabin controls system would extend the capabilities of crew tablets by pairing them with pair crew smartwatches. “All of the members of the cabin crew are wearing the smartwatch so at any place in the aircraft there is a possibility to steer all the different cabin management systems.
Boeing gave airlines and airline industry watchers a bit of a surprise this week during the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget with hints about a long-anticipated “middle of market” plane. The aircraft has been labeled a 797 by industry watchers, based on the numbering sequence the aircraft manufacturer has followed for the seven-series planes since the Boeing 707 was introduced 60 years ago. But Boeing hasn’t formally confirmed the model number or very many details about this plane yet.
The space race is on to give passengers more room — and overhead bin space. Airbus has plans to make airplane cabins more passenger-friendly, whether you’re traveling on their largest or their smallest aircraft. The big news for passengers from the Paris Air Show happening this week is that the aircraft manufacturer is extending its “Airspace by Airbus” cabin concept, which was originally developed for the widebody A350 XWB and the upcoming A330neo.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
