According to Airbus’s two-year study on passenger desires, people overwhelmingly want eco-friendly airplanes. To meet this perceived demand, the aircraft manufacturer has drawn up concept planes that feature low-emissions and increased passenger comfort with such futuristic amenities as see-through fuselage for views of the world. However, the future will indeed be different if this ever comes to pass. Passengers demanding something other than low fares? Doubtful. I really hate to be cynical, but I suspect those surveyed wanted to feel good about themselves when they pledged such loyalty to the environment. It’s true that airplanes will become more fuel efficient…because it will make flights cheaper.
