That depends. Instead of 180 people it may only seat 90

Unless they do what they do in chicken coops and get a bulldozer that pushes all of the crap and dead chickens out once the other chickens have gone on for "processing."

So if they have collapsible seats they could just turn on a bulldozer and shove everyone out along with the dead ones, their poop and whatever other crap they dropped.

The other idea, no overheads. Force everyone to drop off their bag.

how long will the 737-1000 be? Or is there a rule where when you get to -900, you have to have a clean sheet design.

The new SWA

This is a very efficient idea. Like a chicken house, they could have a giant hopper filled with their signature peanuts. The peanuts would use engine bleed air to move them from the hopper to a feeding tough in the center of the aisle.

There would be a separate trough for diet coke. Everyone would be given a straw when they got on board.

No name brand luggage allowed, everyone would have to pack their stuff in a lawn and leaf bag.

Seating would be like the fold down "jumpseats" on miltary transports facing the center of the aircraft. No seatbelts, all passengers would be secured with a single tie down strap for their row.

Lavs would be removed and galleys would be removed allowing more seats. Flight attendants would be issued cattle prods.

All in fun of course.

Either that, or a SAC base.

And risk missing a good rumor on APC?! I hope you're kidding. I had a toilet installed in the den just to be sure.

In fact... never mind.
