BBC – Autos – A flight of fancy: Mercedes-Benz takes to the skies

The German luxury carmaker partners with Lufthansa for a seductive cabin-design project.

Isn’t this amazing? Can you imagine flying like this? This will probably never happen for anyone, but what a wonderful and amazing experience that would be.

It looks so peaceful and relaxing. I wonder why they don’t show this kind of creativity on their cars? Some amazing car design and manufacturing when you research cars. I have seen some beautiful examples of cars and featured them here. Here is the Decoliner. Even a teen who lifted a car off his grandfather.

I think that the airlines attempt to maximize profits by shrinking seat size is ultimately going to work against them. I refuse to fly and I am sure there are others who will not accept that small of a space. Just like crowded rats, the pain of travel will outweigh the benefits.

What is most amazing is that we have the incredible ability to design planes like this, yet we lack the will to find an energy source that would make flight like this economical. How much money has been spent on energy research compared to the trillions spent on war? The human race is like a bully that instead of finding a better way, stubbornly clings to the ideas that “it is right” and has the right and duty to hurt other humans. It is a mystery. Why do we think violence is the answer?
