British Airways gives iPads to its cabin crew

British Airways has started issuing Apple iPads to its cabin crew. It has already given iPad 2 to hundred of its senior cabin crew and targets to give tablets to 1,800 of its senior cabin crew by the end of 2011. These iPads will be used by the cabin crew to have a wireless access to information on passengers, safety manuals, flight timetables and travel preferences of passengers. The paper passenger list which the cabin crew currently uses will also be replaced by the tablet. Cabin crew would also be able to use iPads to inform the ground staff immediately regarding issues like passenger’s vegetarian meal is not yet loaded onto the plane. Apple iPads are becoming popular elsewhere in service industry, like Intercontinental Hotels issuing iPads to its concierge teams.
