The redesign of O’Leary’s new flight ideas plans to exclude the modern aspect of “comfort” during flight. Standing room would be received for flight, but snacks, drinks and accommodations would be excluded to incorporate efficiency and money-saving tactics.

Traveling is costly as airfare is to savings – vacations are are hardly cheap these days. Flying, sleeping, and eating are just a few of the expenditures of the typical excursion beyond the home. With extended family and large, always-expanding networks, it seems that visiting relatives may be, these days, a huge hazard to one’s bank account.

In a recent article in Huffington Post, CEO of RyanAir Michael O’Leary stated that “seatbelts on airplanes don’t matter,” and mentioned that the use of one would do little to no help in the case of a plane crash. Hence, O’Leary is backing a plan to downgrade, or upgrade in some eyes, the design of modern planes.

Since 2009, O’Leary has been comparing, and designing, the style of the London Underground, in which riders on a subway-style bus have no seatbelts, to a new design of a plane in which riders will do the same – stand.

Another one of the largest differences in this design is the cost, which, O’Leary told sources, would range from American equivalent of $25 for a tighter-packed, less romanticized flying experience (with food, drink, and service) in seats in the front of the plane, to $1.60 for standing space in the back of the plane.

If the regulations prove to be safe and regulatory, the redesign of air travel is a brilliant plan that will allow not only American citizens but worldwide travelers to be able to visit loved ones, and take advantage of opportunities without extreme saving and money-oriented plans, but with a sense of fair prices.

With technology that connects and enlarges modern networks to large capacities, social interactions are seemingly desired more and more with the people seen on news feeds each day. This gives those electronic names and pictures more chance to be ‘real’ experiences and adventures rather than in-boxes and text messages.

An efficient, smart and much-modernized approach to the expanding networks and communities in the world today, this invention is one that is very timely and will be put to good use. In this era, it is important that any unnecessary and costly affairs be re-examined and re-evaluated to fit the needs of today’s generations. Romantic expenditure of dining, being waited on, and comfortable conditions, which ironically usually turns out to be anything close to this image, is out of date.
