Submission + - Pod planes could change travel forever (cnn.com)

Max_W writes: Every year we hear about people dying in plane crashes. This does not have to continue as there is a new revolutionary pod plane design. A passenger pod is not heavy because it does not contain fuel, engines, avionics, etc., so in case of an accident it can be ejected and land on parachutes. The obstacle to this new invention is that the whole obsolete airport and airline infrastructure must be rebuild. So what? Shall we continue to get killed because it is easier to produce aircraft with a design from 1950s?
