But for a business, the costs of replacing bulbs can be ENORMOUS. In fact, higher than the costs of the bulbs. But by going to DECENT LEDs, you will get at least a decade. Even the cheap ones (pretty much everything that does not have a Cree or Philip LED) will normally last 2-3 years.
I will say that I bought 1 from Lights of America and another from GE about 5 years ago. Both burned out in less than 1 year. I was NOT impressed. In addition, both burned me on the warrenties. Not impressed.
In addition, I know for a fact that these rarely come back to Home Depot. I have asked at several THD and what I found out was that the ones that fail are in much older homes (from 50s and before), or very cheap ones from before the 90s.
However, the Crees 65 w A19 bulb goes for $6.97 at Home Depot. These will last decades, unless you burn then 24x7.
And this new graphene LED bulbs will compete HOW?
And it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!
$15.99 at NewEgg.

Russian made cars might get 13,000 miles to a tank of gas, but us capitalist pigs have to stop every 400 miles for gas. Even if it was a train tunnel, no train on this planet can go 13,000 miles on one load of fuel. Then you have the pesky problem of ventilation.
"hat are we left with? keep the door open and we have murderous hijacking? "
Yes we have to accept that 0.001% risk of a MURDEROUS HIJACKING
You have a better chance of dying in your bathtub at home by a terrorist hiding behind your shampoo.
"Any method of getting in from the passenger compartment would be vulnerable to coercion."
not if you have an air marshall with an AA12 shotgun full of beanbag rounds right there. There are very simple answers, the airlines are whiny bitches that claim they cant afford it, and that is the center of the problem.
3 crew on flight deck for all aircraft, Let the pilots rest and get good sleep, and2 very well armed angry air marshalls on every flight. Solves 100% of all "terrorisim" problems.
Sadly the people in charge of security that have zero clue as to what to do, and the airlines whiny executives disallow the correct answer.
