Airborne galleries and in-flight innovation labs are just some of the airline innovations redefining the modern flying experience.

Virgin Atlantic launched the Gallery in the Air last February 2013 allowing Upper Class passengers on the carrier’s New York to London routes to buy original works of art by Ben Eine during the flight. Some of the famous British artworks are exhibited at clubhouses in JFK, Newark and Heathrow airports simultaneously the passengers could see a virtual gallery tour of ten one-off pieces while on board. The range of the prices starts at £2,500 to £15,000, and could be bought by putting a 25 per cent deposit with Virgin Atlantic cabin attendants.

In late 2012, UA Cinemas launched and IMAX theatre in Hong Kong International airport. Passengers have the privilege to watch IMAX movies at the HKD20million (£1.67million) complex in 3D or 2D, equipped with crystal clear imagery and laser-aligned sound. In Hong Kong, the IMAX theatre has the biggest cinema screen.

You shouldn’t miss the Museum Space at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris that opened in January 3013. It was built to exhibit French artistic and cultural heritage. For passengers there is free access. The Museum Space is launched along with “Rodin, the Wings of Glory”.

Meanwhile, if ever you’ll travel to UK. British Airways have already completed “UnGrounded” last March 2013. It is an 11-hour innovation lab that was established during a transatlantic flight from San Francisco to London.

You’ll enjoy the books since each book is created to last long during the flight and books are available for free to Qantas Platinum on a several routes.
