What about seat belt?
Will there be no bed belt?

I wouldn't fly on one of those airplanes.
One would have to expect a lot of in-flight "turbulence."
BTW... US law is 12 nautical miles off the coast, how high in the air is US jurisdiction?
(Do we go with hookers on planes or hookers in space?)


Ah, a non-solution to a non-problem. Let's see: if 5% of passengers are willing and able to pay to sleep on a long-haul flight, then.... oh, wait, I know! Let's remove a few economy-class seats and add a few more lie-flat business class seats. Because we already have those, we don't have to add expensive cargo-hold modules and stairwells, and we know the demand curve.

Or is this just too obvious to be worth a story on a slack news day?


I guess that it will be probably an interesting option for business travelers as already pointed out in the article. I, personally, would definitely consider this option though it is not clear how the quality of sleep would look like.
