All aviation eyes will be on Hamburg next week when airlines, aircraft manufacturers and a myriad of suppliers get together for the annual bean fest known as Aircraft Interiors. Despite an air of gloom in the industry due to the relentless rise in the price of fuel, aircraft orders are running at record levels and new aircraft need galleys, seats, carpets and inflight entertainment systems. All music to the ears of John Hyde, Event Director of Aircraft Interiors, our special guest this week on the PME Interview.
In January we celebrated the 50th PME Interview with a competition to win an iPad and I’m delighted to tell you that the winner, drawn at random from dozens of correct entries, was Ahmed Busmait from Gulf Air. Well done Ahmed – your iPad is on its way.
