Did you see the Guardian “In Flight” interactive map showing all the flights worldwide that are in the air at the same time? I know others have posted about it, but it really is pretty amazing and worth spending some time on. Apart from the map, the site charts the history of commercial aviation and what we can look forward to in the future… A fucking nightmare. I don’t fly much anymore and I still have a ton of miles for upgrades, even though they are getting harder and harder… But it is getting increasingly shitasmically worse. Next up… They'll have pay toilets and standing room only (Yeah, I know, Ryanair would do that if they could.) Me, I’ll stick with my favorite, Yorkshire Airlines and Captain Boycott!
Mmmm... That would be about 1968!
