A comfortable way to travel

When explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark made their way across the Rocky Mountains on their gruelling expedition from St. Louis to the Pacific (1804-1806), they certainly didn't travel like this.

How times have changed.

This is a view of the business class pods that airlines are fitting on planes flying long distance routes. They're good for sleeping and for working in privacy; but not so good for conversation.

On this particular Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Toronto, all 24 business class seats were occupied.

Our quest for ever-increasing comforts on journeys of mere hours, protected from the elements, probably would have Lewis and Clark rolling in the aisles in laughter.

But the world turns and things never stop changing.
