    The new trolley system looks not out dated, like the old ones do. I mean we build modern planes but still have trolleys that look like from the 50`s. Continue developing the new trolley system!

    feedback from a passanger

    We got a feeback from a passenger who told us that he was sleeping during a flight when a Flight Attendant smashed the onboard catering trolley against his knee. He was quite annoyed and supports our idea now.

    The skywalker

    This new trolley system will replace the old fashioned catering trolleys. Here you can see it in the "driving mode".
  • 19 March 2013

    Okay, for now that's enough

    In our last posts we often demonstrated the weaknesses of the old-fashioned trolley. That's enough now. From now on we concentrate more on our new technology. Stay tuned for more updates about the "skywalker"!
  • 17 March 2013

    Explanation to the last picture

    In the year 2001 the "IFA" carried out a study of pushing and pulling of trolleys on board aircraft in order to discover spinal loads of flight attendants. The results should lead to an improvement. But did there really change a lot?

    research about injuries caused by service trolleys

  • 16 March 2013

    Why didn't anybody change something?

    The research from our last post is already 15 years old! How can it be that nothing got changed since the research got published? Let's change that! You can help us by sharing your good and bad experiences with catering trolleys at austria.opteryx@gmx.at

  • 24 February 2013

    Airline trolleys used as design furniture?

    We randomly found a company which converts airline trolleys into design furniture. (www.skypak.de/en) Our opinion: These trolleys should be better used as design furniture rather than in airplanes. Soon we will tell you why.
