Perhaps driven by several incidents of recent impact viral, some airlines are implementing new proposals for all the world to fly a little more relaxed. And so as to avoid situations in which someone may get hurt, as happened with the passenger of United Airlines when that security forces dragged him out of a plane in April last, in the united States
Air France, for example, invites us to meditate during their flights in more long-term. To the usual offerings of entertainment on individual screens in front of each seat, added a program designed for you to relax with a meditation session guided, available in French, Spanish, English and Portuguese.
The proposals include variants for guys with titles like The super powers of breathing (adapted from the book Quiet and attentive, Eline Snel) and for adults (the best sellerMeditar day-to-day, Christophe André), as you Travel with the mind or to Fly in the serenity. According to the airline, following its first flight test, 90% of the customers onboard were more relaxed, and 85% said that the experience had a positive influence for a more comfortable ride.
Delta Air Lines has a similar service to that of Air France. It’s called OMG. I Can Meditate (something like my God, I can’t meditate) and consists of tutorials ten minutes under slogans such as Chilling in the clouds, suitable for beginners.
For its part, British Airways is partnered with the app to meditate Headspace and developed a version for your entertainment system with nine tutorials that help you achieve inner calm, deal with the anxiety up in the turbulence more rafting and optimize the rest.
British, Virgin Atlantic, was the pioneer in offering meditation programs on-board, already in 2011. Now the airline of Richard Branson expanded its offering of well-being with the scents of aromatherapy, so far only available for the executive class.
In the same line, but a step further, Spring Airlines, China’s, trained their hostesses to encourage passengers to follow them on their series of stretching exercises, lifting up the hands and tilting the bodies in the choreographies lightweight, but precise.
