With the introduction of its new and innovative air service, ShortJet appears to have finally solved all the problems of flight delays, impersonal service, lost baggage and inconvenient connections. (It has however, potentially worsened, to an exponential degree, the air traffic control problem across the nation’s airspace.)
Here we see ShortJet’s inaugural flight taxiing for take-off. Each of ShortJet’s flights is designed for a single passenger and single pilot, along a one-way flight plan directly from the passenger’s departure city to the passenger’s destination city. Flights therefore leave as soon as the passenger makes it through security, and there are absolutely no flight connections to be missed or layovers to be endured. And baggage can never stray away from the passenger. (Added bonus!: No line at the airplane lavatory!)
One minor inconvenience: to keep ShortJet’s short jets properly balanced, the passenger must sit on the pilot’s lap for the entire duration of both take-off and landing.
