London Luton Airport has two new members of staff.
And according to a BBC News report, they’re called Holly and Graham. And they’re holograms – see what they’ve done there: Holly-grahams.
Manchester Airport announced it was to use holographic staff at the weekend, and Luton will utilise the pre-recorded projections in the same manner.
Namely, to remind passengers in the security area about liquid restrictions, and to have their boarding passes ready, that sort of thing. The idea is that if they’ve been reminded about all this, it will save travellers faffing about when passing through security.
And that should mean smaller queues, theoretically. With Manchester and Luton getting in on the act, it’s only a matter of time before these projections become a common sight in airports across the UK (and elsewhere).
