Top 30 Travel Ideas in October

From Inflight Beer kegs to Productivity-Boosting Airline Cabins

— October 27, 2018 — World
There is nothing worse than spending hours trapped in cramped airplane seats, but the October 2018 travel trends reveal that airlines are taking steps to make the experience a little more bearable. From new types of inflight entertainment, to productivity-boosting pods, air travel is gradually catching up to our modern needs.

One way that airlines are making air travel more fun is with unique inflight experiences. For example, Alaska Airlines is now giving consumers a chance to watch immersive 3D and forward-facing 360-degree films with the SkyLights’ Allosky VR headset. Another example is Lufthansa, which will be serving beer from kegs to celebrate Oktoberfest 2018 in the skies.

However, not everyone travels for vacation. As the October 2018 travel trends reveal, business travel is becoming more efficient with advances like the new productivity-boosting, business-class cabin designed by the Taiwanese airline Eva Air and BMW's Designworks.
