we're getting to the point where cargo of any sort, not just dangerous cargo, is going to simply have to go on a dedicated flight rather than on a flight with passengers. And for that matter, we're not far away from the point where you are going to go the airport, have a full body cavity search, step into a hospital gown, and be tranquilized into a light stupor before the plane takes off. Only way to thwart those terrorists, and as a happy side effect, nearly-comotose people don't need to watch movies, make filthy messes of the bathroom, or demand snacks and drinks. Win-win!

If I could be tranquilized, for free, for the entire flight, I might fly more often. The movies, snacks, etc. are just a distraction from how horrible being stuffed like sardines into a flying can for several hours really is.

I've flown first class once, and it was brilliant. If I were rich, I'd take that route every time. Until then, sign me up for the tranquilizers.

The trouble with flying business or first class is that you can never forget it. Coach class sucks.
