Industry Shape and Trends

Passenger jet pilot jobs

In May and June 2023, the commercial aviation industry saw a significant increase in domestic travel as COVID-19 restrictions began to lift in many countries. This increase in demand led to airlines adding more flights and routes to their schedules. However, the industry also faced challenges such as rising fuel prices and a shortage of pilots. In addition, there were concerns over the environmental impact of air travel, leading to increased pressure on airlines to reduce their carbon footprint. Despite these challenges, the industry remained optimistic about the future and continued to explore new technologies and innovations to improve efficiency and sustainability.

Some of the new technologies that gained attention in the aviation industry were electric and hybrid aircraft. Several companies announced plans to develop and test these aircraft, which have the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions. Another area of focus was the use of sustainable aviation fuels, which are made from renewable sources such as waste oils and fats. Additionally, airlines continued to invest in digital technologies to improve the customer experience, such as mobile check-in and personalized in-flight entertainment. As the industry continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how these new technologies and innovations shape the future of commercial aviation.

Aircrew Product Review

Eagle Creek Packing Cubes

The three-piece Eagle Creek Pack-It Reveal Cube Set keeps a week’s worth of clothes organized and moves easily from suitcase to hotel dresser. We’ve been recommending the previous version of these cubes for five years, and after testing this newly updated set, we now recommend this version.

Eagle Creek Packing Cubes

The full-size cube is great for shirts, shorts, and insulating layers. The half-cube and quarter-cube are perfect for underwear, socks, and other thin fabrics such as stockings or sleepwear. These cubes are made of 300-denier polyester (a strong fabric) and stay upright when empty, so they’re easy to pack. The Pack-It cubes’ windows are made of the tightest mesh link we tested—better for resisting snags—and the smooth zippers close easily around all corners, even when a cube is overstuffed.

The Eagle Creek cubes have the ability to unzip fully to allow full access to their contents while sitting in a dresser drawer. That means your clean clothes stay protected against some potentially dicey motel dressers. In 2022, Eagle Creek updated the design of these cubes, and now the company no longer uses YKK zippers, which are widely accepted as the best around. That said, we couldn’t tell any difference between Eagle Creek’s zippers and other brands’ YKK zippers, even with a magnifying glass, and their performance was indistinguishable. (For what it’s worth, an Eagle Creek product manager assured us that the proportion of zipper-related warranty claims hasn’t changed since the company made the switch from YKK.)

Most travelers are likely to be well served by the Reveal set. But if you value lightness above all, the more expensive Eagle Creek Pack-It Isolate Cube Set is about 50% lighter than similar-size competitors (just over 1 ounce for a medium cube, whereas the Eagle Creek classic style weighs about 4 ounces). Unlike the Reveal set, this set is water resistant. However, the Isolate design’s thin sides—which don’t allow the cubes to stand up on their own—make those cubes a bit more challenging to pack than the Reveal cubes.
