Chinese Discount Airline To Sell Standing Room Tickets

Spring Airlines, a discount Chinese carrier, plans to ask the government for permission to sell standing room tickets. The plan will likely win approval, since Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang was recently quoted as saying: “for a lower price, passengers should be able to get on a plane like catching a bus, with no seat, no luggage consignment, no food, no water, but very convenient.”

You might remember Airbus passionately denying that they intend on introducing standing room only human steerage cattle cars into their airplanes.
