Fly like you were at home

Once more, we are witnessing ever increasing juxtapose. In the airline business of course! Time to set aside all these bad press recently and dream a little. Will you pay for the opportunity to fly in what is touted as the world most advanced airline seat? One that makes you feel at home, as if you were lying on your own bed? Assuming you love you own bed in the first place.

Well this article shared how high tech has transformed the way priority passengers will be treated to when they need twenty winks while flying to their destination(s).

You might have read in our past posts (here and here) about futuristic developments when it comes to the flying experience. In those articles we had read, the common thread is appears to suggest how airlines can fete passengers to a new level of comfort. Our view? It is more of an approach to “up trade” the flying experience for the ones with the means to pay. Which means it is not applicable to most of us.

No. This is not a 99% rant. That’s so passe.

Rather this is an examination of the travel equivalent of the ‘misery index’. One where it is postulated that airlines sets the travel conditions to be so onerous that one would simply pay to get out of that situation. Checked bags? Pay. Choose seats? Pay. To which some might throw their hands up; heck with all of this, just buy the full fare ticket. Or better, since it may be a long flight – perhaps buy that business class seat that turns into a bed?

Will you fall for this ruse? If you had the means, would you pay to sleep on the plane as if it was your bed?

  1. Interesting question, guys. Angela and I have only flown first class once. It was on Ethiad, and it was one of those luxury accommodations where the seat folded down flat and the scotch was exquisite and free. But we got there on a glitch, so we were definitely out of our element. It was a wonderful experience, but I would never pay full price for it. Call me crazy, but

  2. Having used up several thousand airmiles to fly from Hong Kong to London (13 hours) in Business Class, if I could justify the expense I would always travel that way. But you’re right, it’s no fun back in Economy and all you can do is try and survive! We now take the approach that anywhere in Europe we’re fine with economy (but we choose our airlines carefully), but if it’s going to take any longer than about 4-5 hours we’re at least going for premium economy where it’s available…
