Just Plane Tea

A John Lewis Partnership Innovation Team project
The International Air Transport Association estimates that their annual number of passengers will double to 8.2 billion by 2037. Flying is notoriously detrimental to our body due to factors such as cabin pressure, cold temperatures, and low moisture levels. This can leave passengers feeling fatigued, stressed, and in need of some rejuvenation.

Just Plane Tea’ proposes a system for this scenario where passengers are issued a pill with a smart sensor that can measure internal body temperature, acidity levels and hydration. The smart sensor then communicates a passenger’s reading to the cabin crew, who can use this information to assemble a personalised afternoon tea that will combat the negative effects of travel on the body.
