A lot of people were reluctant to fly on planes for a while, and many people found the increased security precautions highly off-putting. However, after over a decade, the situation has begun to change for the better. In an increasingly global society, air travel is going to become that much more important. Air travel is also going to become that much more profitable in a global society that is going to favor increased communication between borders.

According to Boeing, the expansion of the world’s airlines is going to be nothing short of massive. Over the course of the next twenty years, 38,050 airplanes are going to be introduced, according to Boeing. This expansion of the airline fleet is going to cost around 5.6 trillion dollars. It represents an increase of 3.5 percent compared to the predictions that were made as recently as a year ago.

Which Celebrities Fly Coach Revealed

Screen Shot 2015-06-15 at 12.25.22 AMWhen celebrities fly coach, it really is enough to make headlines, it seems. Many people are fascinated by the fact that these extremely wealthy and successful people would ever limit themselves when it came to anything, and that includes air travel. Many people fantasize about being celebrities themselves. As they’re waiting in line for their long and uncomfortable coach flights, they’re probably fantasizing about flying everywhere first class or in a private jet. When they see people like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie-Pitt flying coach instead of first class, the fantasy can suffer somewhat.

It should be noted that the first class option is far from universal. Many people will only be able to fly to certain locations using specific airplanes, and those airplanes may not even have the first class option. As such, any celebrity that gets there may need to fly coach. There’s also the fact that celebrities do not always schedule their own flights. They will typically have personal assistants who take care of all of that for them. Their personal assistants, as competent as they must be in order to land such a prestigious job, are still going to make mistakes at time. Some celebrities may end up in coach just because of a mistake in the planning process, which might be their fault or the fault of their personal assistants. These things are going to happen from time to time.
