    Would you like to get checked in with Google Glass? Virgin Atlantic has begun a six-week test aimed at giving its employees more information about some passengers as they enter the London Heathrow airport.

    The program, which is currently designed only to aid customer service staff attending to upper class passengers, uses Google Glass and Sony’s SmartWatch 2 to serve up information about passengers and their destinations.

    From the minute Upper Class passengers step out of their chauffeured limousine at Heathrow’s T3 and are greeted by name, Virgin Atlantic staff wearing the technology will start the check-in process.

    Virgin Atlantic State “From the minute Upper Class passengers step out of their chauffeured limousine at Heathrow’s T3 and are greeted by name, Virgin Atlantic staff wearing the technology will start the check-in process. At the same time, staff will be able to update passengers on their latest flight information, weather and local events at their destination and translate any foreign language information.”

    Virgin Atlantic is testing the program in a six-week pilot project before considering a wider roll-out.
