In keeping with this leadership position, the research staff has completed an extensive analysis of food service requirements for the new Boeing 747 and other "jumbo jets." The 362-passenger 747's will be flying this winter, and Marriott has prepared to service them throughout the world, in the most comprehensive program of its type in the industry. Worthy of special note is the design creativity Marriott brought to development of a new high-lift truck for servicing these giant planes. "Kitchens-of-the-Future" Designed An important step forward in 1969 was completion of prototype kitchen designs which increase Marriott's capability to handle various airline requirements anywhere in the world. Introduction of the 747 adds a particularly significant dimension to airline catering, and the need for flexibility and economies of operation such as these prototypes provide is becoming critical. As a major food supplier to airlines, and as operator of a giant new food commissary, Marriott is in a particularly strong position to serve the growing interest of carriers in convenience foods. The Fairfield Farm Kitchens, a sophisticated commissary of the future, has already developed complete meal "packages" for presentation to two large airlines. Efficiencies and economies are promised by integrating the airline catering and central manufacturing operations, and further product development is receiving top priority. Research and development activities include improvements in employee productivity and service to the airlines. In this regard, strict employee training programs are in effect, and new films encompassing safety in servicing aircraft and specific skills training have been prepared. Several factors had a negative effect on airline catering results during the year. Volume suffered from delays caused by the widely-publicized air traffic controllers' situation, and from strikes at both domestic and international airlines. Low airline profits led to difficult pricing problems for Marriott. These were in addition to spiraling wage and food costs. Marriott, however, is optimistic about growth prospects for this business. Air passenger miles are rising, and the advent of the "jumbo jets" gives promise of an even greater rate of growth in the next few years. In fiscal 1970, the company will open new kitchens at Newark, London, Madrid, Rome, San Juan and Buenos Aires airports, and expansions at Ft. Lauderdale and St. Croix kitchens—tangible evidence of confidence in this thriving business. Swissair jet to Copenhagen being loaded at O'Hare International. Airport, Chicago. 16
