Don’t look now, but you’re about to get bumped from your flight. It’s a shame too, as this plane is especially comfortable, with roomier seats, wider aisles and bigger, more convenient windows that provide stunning views of the sky bound scenery.
This high-tech wonder, dubbed the C series, comes courtesy of the Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier, and also flies 50 percent quieter, is more fuel efficient, therefore less costly to operate. Another bonus from its innovative design, it saves passengers big bucks on baggage fees through larger overhead storage bins that can fit a roller-sized suitcase.
So impressed was Atlanta based Delta airlines with the C series that the U.S. carrier recently ordered 75 of the aircraft to upgrade their service on shorter routes. But if aerospace giant Boeing has their way, we’ll all be taking the bus.
