News, but not the serious kind
Movie? I’ll SHOW you a movie!
I could be in big trouble for showing this, but I was able to sneak a photo from this week’s super-secret conference of commercial airline designers. They are planning the next generation of air travel, which will make today’s flights seem like the good old days.
It turns out, by introducing a tombstone-sized slab of limestone in the boarding process, a jumbo jet can actually hold 6,000 passengers. Even more, if they take the bargain “shirtless shuttle,” as seen here.
The guy on the left represents the flight attendants of the future, who will carry Louisville Sluggers. They will still say things like “May I get you anything?” to the passengers, but in the future, that will mostly be sarcasm.
