Heathrow Upper Class concierge kitted out with Glass to assist passengers as part of a trial
Considering Google Glass isn't officially available outside of the U.S, Richard Branson has been especially kind to Virgin Atlantic's London Heathrow check-in agents. The members of staff looking after the airline's Upper Class passengers are being given Google Glass as part of a six week trial to guide their customers through the check-in process.
Glass can identify the passenger, see their flight details and selected preferences and present the necessary flight information to the concierge. Glass then proceeds to check the passenger in for the flight and can update with travel information, as well as details such as the weather and local events at the destination.
Besides being pretty cool, Google Glass its hoped is going to provide the ultimate personal service to Virgin Atlantic's Upper Class customers. The trial is being undertaken at Heathrow Terminal Three, so if you're headed that way in the next six weeks you might see some Glass around. If the trial is successful, it may be rolled out further.
