Hmmm business talk, easy chat, work or relax.

If easy chat is now a mood, why can't "Handjob under a blanket" be one?

Beat me to it. I'd like the hummer seat, please. Preferably a woman but if the plane is going down, the person in the seat next to me needs to as well. Thanks.

easy chat sounds like the grandma section.
business talk is the douchebags exchanging business cards
work is travel monkeys on deadlines fark off
and relax is drunk in the lounge and about to pass out after a 2 day no sleep trip.

I could see all but grandma on the same flight, just depends. I guess committing to one or the other wouldn't be that awful. Would they kick all the children out of the "work" section? Cause that would quickly become my favorite.

The airline gathers this personal information by encouraging users to log in through Facebook when they sign up for the service. Customer profiles are collected in a database, which the airline says is private and secure.

Thank FSM. I thought it was going to be really creepy and invasive.

So much this... Not sure they can do much larger windows though, probably having to do with the structural integrity of the plane itself, but I would love to see them, too...

I like the concept of this plan though. Don't know if it will work, but it means that someone is thinking outside the box at least. About the best we have in the US is JetBlue, and they aren't doing much besides giving me more legroom, which is truly wonderful...

I'd be in a better mood if the godless barbarian sitting next to me wasn't spilling over the armrest into my seat, or I wasn't being the olfactorily raped by the evidence of an intestinal battle with chicken vindaloo occurring in the guy in in front of me.
 
2012-06-08 04:22:49 PM
So every plane will now have a section of "can't shutup" which will conveniently fill the rest of the plane with the chirpngs of an inescapable aviary.

Better to isolate them.

The new Boeing Dreamliners have much bigger windows, but those planes are made with a bunch of carbon fiber, so maybe that's why they could do it. Unless you're on a long-haul flight, you won't be on a Dreamliner, but I bet future models of smaller planes will have this feature too.

Yeah, I never get to go anywhere fun enough to fly on anything but 737's and one really nice brand-new Airbus A319. I told my wife that someday we are going to travel somewhere that we can fly on a 747 or a Dreamliner, just to see what it's like to be on a bigger plane. Of course that doesn't mean the people will be resembling sardines any less, but it will be cool...

I used to work on the 787 Program, and it's kind of sad to think about the fact that it will probably be decades until I fly on one. Hell, I have never even flown on a 777. Of course, that's what happens when you haven't been overseas since 1991.

Considering the 11 that have been delivered are all in Asia (JAL & Nippon), I'd say very few have ridden on a 78 yet.

Damn, that's nice... Only flown 1st class once, and that was from Salt Lake to Phoenix, a 1 hour flight, and after being on standby and being bumped for 6 1/2 straight, I was so relieved to be on a plane that I didn't even remember the 'free drinks' thing.

/There were also a bunch of airline employees who were getting bumped just as many times as us

That might depend on the distance and the available routes. I recently compared train vs. air travel for a trip I'll be taking from San Francisco to Chicago later this year, and I found that unless I was willing to spend 4 nights each way sleeping in a chair, the cost of taking a train would be nearly 5 times the cost of flying. And even if I were willing to sleep in a chair, the cost of travel by train was still a bit higher than flying.

Yes, I'll give you that. Even a day would be a little much for me. I'm talking about the ny to dc, or ny to Boston... Or maybe LA to Vegas... 4 hours on the train compared to 1 on a Plane.... I actually find the train fun and relaxing.. And the train is usually cheaper..

Other than in India, where labor issues are affecting the rollout, I would expect those 11 are putting in plenty of cycles with every seat full. Maybe very few Farkers, though.

For what it's worth, if the train ride:

1. took a day or less,
2. were roughly as fast as (if not faster than) driving, and
3. were cheaper than driving,

then I'd use it. As it is, however, trains only make sense for me if I can use them for the daily commute and can purchase a reasonably-priced monthly pass.

747 is better than 777 on BA.

IMHO, fly Club World (BA's long haul business class... better than most airlines first class) upper deck instead of First... as good as First (unless you need the wider, even longer bed of First).

Interesting fact - The Most efficient way for an airplane to board is not simply front-to-back, but :

Alternating sides, two rows staggered, outside to in and front to back.

Meaning that if a plane has 30 rows, and one aisle and two seats on either side, 30 A boards first, then 28 D, then 26 A, then 24 D, 22A,20D,18A, 16D ...

This eliminates all bottlenecks created by people needing to put their luggage overhead, take their jackets off, and then sit down.

And it will never be implemented.

Because people will never divide up their groups travelling together.

Doesn't entirely eliminate the issue of people bringing slightly-too-many carry-on bags of slightly-too-large size, resulting in the plane running out of overhead bin space. But that's better addressed by including the average cost of transporting checked bags in the fare, which few airlines seem to do anymore.
