Airline sky map ads

Ads appear on airline in-cabin maps as passengers fly over the client site

Opportunity: Some airliners now have animated maps that display on a screen in the cabin. The maps display the plane's position as it travels to its destination.

Proposal: I suggest that "ad space" be sold to the points of interest on the ground that are pointed out on the map during travel. Such advertising is now done on Google maps. The airline map could include audio as well as video advertising for amusement parks, spots that serve tourists around national landmarks, etc.

Delta Airlines introduces the glass bottom ground map concept for iPads https://www.google....al&client=firefox-a

       [-] For Krum's sake, we don't need *any* new forms of advertising. Autobone.

       Sure we do. I think the idea is good. +

       I'm not sure. If it means I get a cheaper flight on a decent airline I might be okay with some lame advert I can ignore if I want to. I'm not sure this is a bad ad because it does give me (the ever fickle price conscious airline consumer) the ability to purchase a cheaper flight.

       Could a company reshape less important lakes and coastlines to more closely resemble its logo?
jutta, Oct 26 2005

       Yeah, you can always do with more advertising...
JoeyJoJoShabadoo, Oct 26 2005

       [jutta] they might be able to do faux reshaping with blue tarpaulins.

       Christo is known for wrapping islands and the like: talk to him.

       People who want less advertising should have their names published.   

       + for starting a thread that drifted into a discussion of terraforming.

       This is a great display to have available for passenger viewing, with attractions labeled (be this advertising or not). Try flying over the Grand Canyon and pointing out where you have been or where you would like to visit. All you can see from 35,000 feet is the canyon.

       Ditch the audio, and you can keep the peace.   

       Ads work much better if it was personalized.   

       Inevitably, we'll have internet access in each seat, and one website, provided by the airline, funded through ads, will have such a display for us, with ads that match our preferences.
