Re: Glossing a commercial turd
>It's perfect for USA -> Europe. You go to bed on the plane like you would in a hotel room, but you wake up at destination, the idea behind London->Scotland sleeper trains of the past.
Only issue is timings. The London->Scotland sleeper was really good: I would get on at circa 9pm and disembark in Glasgow/Edinburgh around 6:30/7am. The issue is with a train you can travel slowly and park it in a siding for a couple of hours, so that disembarkment time is reasonable.
The challenge is converting this to aviation: if you can't takeoff/land with people asleep in the beds then somehow you need to adjust the flight time so that the use of the beds is perceived as being beneficial.
