Virgin Atlantic offers upper class passengers at London Heathrow a customised check-in featuring Google Glass and Sony Smartwatch products

Virgin Atlantic has started a test designed to offer its employees more information about select passengers. The six-week trial aims to allow its customer service staff to use Google Glass and Sony's Smartwatch 2, to offer travel information to its upper class passengers at London Heathrow airport.

If the program is successful, Virgin has revealed it could potentially bring the customised concept using Sony and Google products to other airports - however the company has not revealed whether the service will be offered to all ticket holders.

Google Glass costs around $1,499 and is currently only available to those who sign up to the Glass Explorer program. No details have been unveiled of how many units of Google Glass and the Sony Smartwatch the airline will use.
