A standing-only section on planes
could mean lower fares, study says

Los Angeles Times, by Hugo Martin

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/6/2014 2:12:14 PM

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

This is crazy. You have so little protection in an airplane in the case of a rough landing or survivable crash. IMO this equates to riding a motorcycle while wearing no shirt, shorts, and flipflops and no helmet.

No, but I would pay more for 1980´s style air travel: Full meal, more leg room, gracious cabin crew, reasonable baggage allowance, on-time service.

This is the 0bamaNation smoking mirror way of getting more people to ride the plane to pay "extra taxes" being mandated for his jackbooted, but lazy TSA. Oh, and it´s a true cynical approach to remind him who has the pen and phone. This is purely an asinine idea to show how backwards we will go to serve "his" purposes (as sheep).

Having been on a number of company aircraft during test flights it is not abnormal to be standing or even in the flight station during take offs and landings. Allowing paying passengers to not have seats brings on a whole new set of issues and potential liability.

I´m starting to think there is a conspiracy to drive all reasonable, thinking Americans into deep depression, extreme anger or maybe we should just head for hills... away from society until hopefully Americans gain their common sense back.

This concept started in Europe with super discount airfares for those month long vacations of the steerage class. Europe the bringer of such other stellar ideas like planes that ignore pilot commands, won´t land on runways, preferring trees. Europeans the heady unwashed, sloshing around in the rear shifting the balance of the aircraft beyond control.

I think they ought to bring back gliders, a la WWII. The 777 or 380 can then just take off, circle around, and snatch up a glider full of paying passengers, dropping them off either at the aircraft´s destination or another airport enroute, then continuing on to the towing aircraft´s original destination. Think of the fuel they´d save while increasing revenues!

This is loony toons. And get thisinfo aout this "university study":

The study’s author, Fairuz I. Romli, an aerospace engineering professor and lecturer at the Universiti Putra Malaysia, said passengers would probably only be comfortable standing on flights shorter than three hours.

Fairuz should be more concerned about Malaysian airlines and how to keep them from losing aircraft full of passengers.

This is often a normal practice in third world countries. Those who think the FAA won´t accept it forget that they work for Obama and he´s intent on us becoming a third world nation (wasn´t that the hopey-changey thing anyway?). In Vietnam, our Air Force used to at least strap the locals down to the floor with tie-down straps (though Americans had to be in seats with seat belts on). I don´t think the Vietnamese bothered with that nicety on their flights. In fact, I recall a case where a Vietnamese pilot flew 13 Vietnamese in the back (blue room) of an A1E - which was meant to accomodate 4 people. They obviously were not restrained.

Horizontalize your passengers and they will take up the same amount of room in great comfort.

Attorney General Eric Holder, who announced his resignation on Thursday, leaves a dismal legacy at the Justice Department, but one of his legal innovations was especially pernicious: the demonizing of state attempts to ensure honest elections. As a former U.S. attorney general under President Reagan, and a former Ohio secretary of state, we would like to say something that might strike some as obvious: Those who oppose photo voter-ID laws and other election-integrity reforms are intent on making it easier to commit vote fraud. That conclusion is inescapable, given the well-established evidence that voter-ID laws don´t disenfranchise minorities or reduce

Everybody wants to get out of here.” When asked to describe the current situation in Baghdad, White said, it “is basically the worst it’s ever been.

ROSWELL, GA -CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines? The three-page list of recommendations include instructing funeral workers to wear protective equipment when dealing with the remains since Ebola can be transmitted in postmortem care. It also instructs to avoid autopsies and embalming. Alysia English is Executive Director of the Georgia Funeral Directors Association, the oldest and largest funeral association in

Arguably the world´s best chess player ever, Garry Kasparov is on a new mission. He hopes to convince the world that the biggest threat to global unrest is not the Islamic State, al-Qaida or North Korea. Instead it is Vladimir Putin, Russia´s president from 2000 to 2008 and then again from 2012 to today. In an interview with Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga, Kasparov outlined his reasons for believing that Putin should be what keeps the world up at night.

Phoenix - Federal authorities who have pushed back against Arizona´s attempts to confront illegal immigration in recent years face a Tuesday deadline to comment on two state immigration policies being scrutinized by the courts. The Obama administration is scheduled to provide input in a challenge of Gov. Jan Brewer´s policy that denies driver´s licenses to certain young immigrants who have avoided deportation under a change ordered by the president. White House officials are also expected to urge a judge to throw out Arizona´s 2005 immigrant smuggling ban.

The USMC is preparing to deploy 2,100 Marines to Kuwait under the auspices of Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force (SPMAGTF). The deployment was planned before the current "conflict in Iraq and Syria with the Islamic State" began. According to Defense News, Colonel Kenneth DeTreux said the SPMAGTF will be deployed in "fiscal ´15." They will have "attack aircraft, the AV-8B Harrier, and support aircraft such as the MV-22 Osprey and KC-130 Super Hercules." The SPMAGTF "will be equipped to perform noncombat evacuation, humanitarian assistance, infrastructure support, tactical aircraft recovery, fixed-site security and theater sustainment missions."

The Northeast, once the nation’s political engine that produced presidents, House speakers and Senate giants including the late Edward M. Kennedy, is losing clout in Washington as citizens flee the high-tax region, according to experts worried about the trend. The Census Bureau reports that population growth has shifted to the South and the result is that the 11 states that make up the Northeast are being bled dry of representation in Washington. Critics blame rising taxes in states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut for limiting population growth in the Northeast to just 15 percent from 1983 to 2013, while the

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington.
