When you fly, are you more prone to sit by the window or not sit by a window.

For those of you that like sitting by the windows; that may become a thing of the pass.  A Paris airline designer has proposed building passenger jets with NO WINDOWS!!!

Also the Center for Process Innovation also thrown around the idea of a Windowless Jet and it’s getting a lot of attention.

So one day, and hopefully not soon, there will be planes with no Windows.

CENTER FOR PROCESS INNOVATION:   “There’s a good reason for this proposed window-killing—sticking windows onto the sides of planes means you have to bulk up the fuselage, which makes planes heavier, and bigger gas guzzlers. There’s a reason cargo planes don’t have windows.

CPI estimates that for every 1 percent of weight reduction, planes see a 0.75 percent fuel savings. And that’s a big deal. Airlines burn hundreds of millions of gallons of fuel every month—easily the industry’s biggest expense. Cutting back the weight of a given plane by even 5 percent would have huge ramifications for an airline’s profit margins, and the cost of airfare.”
