Google Glass brings new level of personal service to Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic hostess using Google Glass

Next time you arrive at the airport, the person checking you in may know your name, destination and even your dietary requirements before you even open your mouth.

Virgin Atlantic’s concierge staff in the Upper Class lounge at London Heathrow have begun trialing a scheme in which hostesses recognize passengers using Google Glass.

The technology will be able to identify a customer, see their flight details and preferences, before showing the hostess their flight information, and more.

The technology then immediately begins checking that passenger in, and can update the hostess on travel information, weather and events at the customer's destination.
