So what do you think of today's poll?

Would you stand on an airplane for a "deep discount"?

A ridiculous question - or is it just me?

nope, thought it was pretty stupid too.

but discounting that, it would be somewhat amusing ( in a monty python sort of way) to see all the standing pax, slowing slide down to the rear of the aircraft and fall into a mass of legs and arms on take off. and as for landing, one can only imagine.

I wouldn't stand if they gave me a spot for free. Where would I put my drink?

Does the poll say whether you are standing on the inside or out?

I have not seen this. I looked at the topic as I thought you meant the 'survey' thing that arrived by PM yesterday. (and that was rubbish too.)

This silly question does rather ignore the fact that it is illegal to carry standing passengers on a plane.

And if the aircraft hits turbulence the standing pax become human missiles. What a stupid question.

Cheers.

Observing the number of seated, but unrestrained,

people who get hurt in turbulence I think this is a question that doesn't show much thought.

Perhaps Ryan is doing an under the table study?

Stupid question? None the less a private airline in China - Spring Airlines - is submitting plans for journeys where passengers can opt to stand to save money.
