Largest modernisation project in aviation history

American Airlines has announced a large-scale overhaul for its fleet - which, it claims, will see passengers enjoy greater comfort, technology and space thanks to a multi-billion dollar investment. The Texas-based airline has revealed plans for an epic upgrade, which bosses have branded the 'largest modernisation project in aviation history'.
The airline's president, Robert Isom, told Business Traveller that 550 of the company's narrow-body fleet will be reconfigured to include 'new seats, new interiors, satellite Wi-Fi, new in-seat power and much larger bins'.
'It’s going to have thinner and more comfortable seats, satellite Wi-Fi and a world-class library of stored content, videos and shows,' he said.

Meanwhile, it will also begin providing passengers with in-flight text messaging - compatible with Apple's iMessaging function, which will be free of charge to people in both economy and premium-economy upwards.
In addition, from December, long-haul customers in first, business class or premium economy receive a host of sleep-inducing products. These will include a duvet, pillow, pajamas and slippers, plus a mattress pad and day blanket designed by sleep company Casper. 

On its Facebook page, the airline posted about how the idea. They had tested around 50 products to “help achieve the perfect flight’s sleep.” [American Airlines]
