The real problem with civilian air travel is that security people have no way of knowing how the customers are going to behave. Perhaps, like
the subjects of the current investigations in UK, some travelers plan to assemble a bomb after they get airborne, and take control.
So here's my solution:
Sedation Air Travel
Taking my inspiration from sedation dentistry, wherein the patient is rendered unconscious for the duration of the procedure, sedation air travel
would involve a general anasthetic for airline passangers. Instead of stewardesses, just have nurses. You could save money, because the passengers
will not eat, use minimal oxygen, and could be stacked several humans deep in bunks.
If they are unconscious, then they cannot sabotage the airplane.
imaginary conversation at airline arrivals desk
You: "I'm here to pick up my boss, Stan Blathery. He's arriving on the 5:10 from New York."
Nurse: "The plane landed just a few minutes ago. Mr. Blathery is still in recovery. As soon as he regains consciousness, he can have two visitors.
He came through the flight just fine, and the doctor plans to release all passengers in a few moments. . . ."
See, easy for you to meet your guest. Easy for the airlines, easy for security.
Problem solved. You're welcome.
