“Happiness blanket” from British Airways

AuthorThe AirHelper

British Airways has recently conducted an interesting experiment. Passengers flying from London to New York were equipped with “happiness blankets” which measured their mood during the flight. Special sensors in made the blanket turn red when passengers were anxious or stressed and blue when they were relaxed.

As British Airways have discovered, air passengers are happiest when they either sleep or eat.

We were just wondering how red the blankets would turn if they were given to passengers of delayed or cancelled flights. Most probably they would not turn blue for people sleeping on airport benches or eating airport junk food.

Will British Airways ever be willing to find out?

Meanwhile, check out how happiness blankets work.
