Sitting in the first public mockup of Airbus’ Airspace cabin, it was striking how much of a revolution this interior redesign is for the narrowbody passenger experience — and, with more than five thousand A320 family narrowbodies currently on order, how many passengers on how many flights will benefit. It’s not just the larger overhead bins, extra inch at the shoulders, or improved sense of window space with the new shrouding, either.
As the inflight connectivity industry ratchets up speeds and bandwidth for traditional satellite applications, not every airline will be able to make a business case for full inflight broadband. Lufthansa Systems is working on a solution to deliver some of the benefits of connectivity to those airlines, while Lufthansa Technik is working on reducing the supplementary type certificate barriers to entry.
‘We can save you up to $100,000 per aircraft annually.’ That’s the heady promise being made by Honeywell, as it unveils what it says is a “first-of-its-kind” data control and consulting program to give business jet operators and ground crew better visibility into data usage through real-time updates, sophisticated traffic management tools, consultation services and fresh billing options. Think of the consulting side of the offering as a sort of “geek squad” for business jet operators.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
