Amazing!!! As if getting in a car full of lithium batterys isn't scary enough. I just can't wait to get on a plane full.
So a 9 seater on the route LON-AMS.
Ticket prices will be over £ 400 each way to cover pilots wages and cabin crew wages plus the cost to -recharge- the aircraft plus landing / take off fees.
No one in their right mind is going to pay 400 GBP+ each way for LON-AMS
As with cars, but more so, aviation relies on a supply of a universal grade of fuel being available at all reasonably possible landing places. So if your AMS flight gets diverted to Eindhoven, no problems, Eindhoven's truck just fills you up and away you go. And if you never divert to Eindhoven, it doesn't matter because the fuel stored there will pretty soon be sold to someone else. So who will pay for all the charging infrastructure to be installed at all the possible diversion airfields, where it will sit idle for 99.99% of the time?
might run down to the local supermarket and purchase 470,000 ever-ready batteries.
