Last week this aircraft was reported in the news. Does anyone know how this might improve flights in future? Will it make the aircraft more comfortable during turbulence? Wll it reduce wake turbulence and reduce drag and therefore increase fuel economy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTfWlOU6Lic (Albatross 1 model tests) Albatross Full size A321 Airbus: https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-releases/en/2019/06/how-the-albatross-is-inspiring-next-generation-of-aircraft-wings.html

PSĀ  Sorry did not mean to mislead!-I have just seen this is not a full size aircraft but a scale model from Airbus! Still the same questions still apply!

The second sentence in the liked article answers already your question... "[...] to reduce drag and overall wing weight, while combating the effects of turbulence and wind gusts."

Incidentally, I believe that data kraken must be smashed.
You may stop this individual, but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike.
