Richard Branson's latest money-making scheme? Glass-bottom planes...

Don't you hate it when you're on the aisle seat of a plane and there's a fat, balding person on the window seat? You're flying over a beautiful sprawling landscape of mountains and seas and you want to have a glimpse but said man is too busy sweating and chuckling to a rubbish Sandra Bullock joke to give you a chance to peek. Well, Richard Branson has announced plans fora new fleet of Virgin Airlines glass-bottom planes so you can see everything going on, right under your feet which is either the most awesome idea in aviation since hot stewardesses or the scariest thing in the world. The planes will initially only be for flights between UK and Scotland but there are plans to expand across the world.
