Airline travel in coach continues to be difficult for the business user who would like to be productive. On this trip the man across the aisle has a lovely little netbook. Much smaller than my laptop which is admittedly gargantuan with its beautiful big screen.
But he’s twisted around sideways in his seat anyway. Apparently he’d like be able to do something useful with it – and he doesn’t have enough room, even with what looks like a toy, to do so. As for me, I’m going to write this blog post on my iPhone just to prove I can, and post it using the wonderful GoGo network inflight Internet service.
And that gives me puase. I was willing to pay for internet service; for six bucks it was worth it. Would I pay for legroom? Yes. So with airlines monetizing everything else, maybe it’s time to think about that idea again. Take two rows of seat out and increase space for – what, 6? 8? Charge a few bucks more. I’d pay. Would you? $25? $50?
