Will it stop and pretend to listen to my sob stories in hopes of getting a better tip?

They're going to call it the "Lavatory Blocker 3000".

But who will hand it to me over the slumbering leviathan who took the aisle seat?

It will ensure that you are not dispensed more than 4.17 ounces of soda per flight.

Reminds me of the pill dispensary ones at some hospitals.

Great. Now build it into the back of the seat in front of me.

That'll feel real good against the shins and feet of people crammed into the aisle seats.

It appears to be thinner than the typical cart...

Which means they can make the isle skinnier and add another row of seats.

ProfessorOhki: But who will hand it to me over the slumbering leviathan who took the aisle seat?


This is what I'm wondering. What if I'm on an aircraft with a 3 3 3 arrangement of seats and I'm in a window seat? How to I reach all the way across to Mr roboto when he passes? I'd probably still prefer the stewardess, even if they are a bit surly at times.

Oh boy, a service cost savings with inferior automation without a corresponding decrease in ticket cost plus less employment opportunities!

Christmas just came early, all over my face.

Yeah. Oh, I'm so excited. They save money, probably raise ticket prices, and service will be worse.

Thanks airlines!

As someone who got off of a 10 hour flight yesterday, pffft. Don't really give a rats ass how quick my drink is served.

Call me when they can keep the fat guy from reclining his seat while I'm eating/working, keep the couple next to me out of each others pants, cork the flatulent asshole across from me, and stop the 2 year old behind me from offering a free massage.

//longest flight ever.
