must be something going around at the moment. A colleague at work (with transport intrests but NOT in aviation) sent me details on the ‘new’ B797 that was being test flown and could carry 1000 passengers in a ‘giant wing’ format…

Airbus mentioned in the article that they submit hundreds of patents every year, though most of them never actually make it. Just protecting their ideas, I doubt this one will actually work. it would force airports to completely change terminals and whatnot.

that’s very true, one of the strangest ideas I have heard of!
