Skift Take

The tray tables help make the most of fliers’ personal space and would be a smart investment for airlines that don’t offer their own in-flight entertainment.

Trying to fit a laptop, a cell phone and a glass of wine onto the aircraft tray table can be difficult for passengers, especially in economy class.

The so-called SmartTray X1, which debuted at the recent APEX EXPO in Long Beach, features built-in grooves for holding travellers’ PEDs, whilst the SmartTray X2 “tray in a tray” tray table allows travellers to watch content on tablets sealed within the tray table; the unique design permits viewing with the tray table up or down. At the same time, a battery installed inside the tray table powers the tablets. Content can be pre-loaded or Wi-Fi streamed.
