Actually, I see some merit in Robert's idea. For this to work we need better anaesthesia with fewer side-effects. The passenger is informed of the medical risks and gives informed consent. My way of handling long flights was to get drunk. This is better.
What's on your mind...

It would give the drug companies something worth while to work on for a change.
I think you basically sign your life away anytime you buy an airline ticket anyway.. so much fine print
that nobody ever reads. But you can bet the blood sucking lawyers would have a field day if someone
died while on one of these flights.. no matter the real cause of death.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Not a bad idea, until someone doesn't wake up.

I would be willing to give it a shot though

Tens of thousands of people drive off to their deaths every year in the U.S. but we wouldn't think of getting rid of our cars.
People dying of peanut allergies is all the rage these days. But are we going to outlaw the peanut?
Why not give people the option to fly while under general anesthesia?
They wouldn't think of taking your apendix out with putting you under. Why not a long trip in an airplane?
Flying is getting to be more and more like having your apendix taken out while you're awake.
