Lufthansa debuts prototype in-flight VR experience

August 05, 2018 / ELEANOR SEMERARO

Lufthansa passengers flying from Frankfurt to Dubai on flight LH630 were the first to experience the airline’s new prototype “VR Moving Map”, while on board the Airbus A330.Passengers wearing special VR glasses were able to view the moving landscape below them as a 3D map and even take part in a selection of 360-degree virtual excursions. The VR experience lasted for around 30 minutes, and the airline hopes that this trial will be useful to understand passenger interest and gain feedback on potential implementation.As the aircraft flew over Vienna, some passengers virtually rode the Prater Ferris Wheel or even had the chance to virtually attend one of the city’s famous classical concerts.
