The indoor climate on airplanes is a frequent source of complaints. In the future, passengers should be able to set their own individualized climate and temperature controls and also be able to adjust air supply to their own personal preference.

As some airlines begin removing complex entertainment systems in favor of iPads, precious space and weight is saved that could be used to allow passengers to adjust temperatures to their liking.
