For some, business class is a miraculous haven of well cooked meals and SiriusXM radio, but it’s about to get even more mystical. There are plans for passengers flying business class to get the ability to customize their seats on their phone before they even set foot on the plane. This means that each seat in business class will provide different amenities based on the preference of the individual passenger.

The seats will use NFC technology to connect with the passenger’s phone beforehand so they can tell the seat exactly what they want. The customization is robust as well as it lets the user choose the entertainment section and seat configuration amongst other things. It even comes with eye-tracing technology so if the user falls asleep during a movie the movie will pause and resume when they wake up.
