Where Air Travel Stands Today

Gee, You Think?

The Atlantic magazine has a rather long article on the technology of airliners. Here is one conclusion from it.

"The bitter truth is that human air travel probably won’t get much better in the years to come. It might have reached certain limits in terms of speed, economy, and comfort. There are any number of signs that this is the case: climate change, limited resources, land-use constraints, wealth inequality, and so on."

Wow, that makes everyone feel better who has to fly. Yep, however bad your flying experience is today, that is as good as it gets.
