New Air Travel Paradigm

You Know; For The Passengers
  (-1)

Recently another plane was lost with a full load of passengers, in another apparent act of terrorism. Hundreds of people likely perished; and at the time of this writing the plane and all on board have not been recovered.

Perhaps a new paradigm is in order! Instead of one plane taking off with hundreds of passengers, have hundreds of planes taking off with a single passenger. <linkies>

The result will look something like a plague of locusts flying through the sky, but at least it will decrease the chances that all passengers will be killed with a single act of terror.

       Wait - if it were terrorism, surely someone would have claimed "credit" for it by now.

       It would be cheaper to do that holographically, and just have one jet that actually flies.   

       So one passenger gets to do the actual flying part of the trip; what to do with the rest? Easy. Give them all virtual flights and journeys. People on business trips would be tricked into simulating these on Skype 27. People would holiday in holograms. Get them all drunk, and even with current technology it would be a walk in the park.

       That's much better, yes [bigsleep]. And then why not also substitute a bus (or even a traditional donkey cart if one scales the avatars down to their projections onto a screen)?   

       Your hijacker could be dropped off somewhere between places in Northern Australia or Western Namibia (or better still, on Baffin Island) and told to wait there for the houris. They wear beautiful, soft, snow-white fur coats.
