I know I’m a little late to the party, but it’s worth posting about anyway. The infamous United Airlines incident that went viral globally reminded me of predictions I made in 2012 that have begun to see fulfillment in recent years. I started with this:
“Airplane companies fold one by one as increased fuel surcharges and decreased usage make the already vulnerable industry shut down its main operations. Expect this to lead to increased crowding on flights and fights breaking out at terminals worldwide for the next several years.”
The instability in the airline industry has been a long running trend over the last few years. United’s “re-accommodation” mishap is only the latest in a series of scandals permeating throughout the entire airline industry. From increased hassles and fees to invaded privacy, terminal fights and terrorism, flying has become disdained by most of the world. All of this anger and feelings of being fed up leads to most important innovation of the decade, the flying car.
Later this year, I believe the final prototype of a mass produced flying car will be released to the public. There have been a number of iterations previously, but I believe this latest one will be the one that becomes the major money maker. It will soon be available, likely released by years end. The price will be affordable enough soon after release where most Americans can save up for it if they invest wisely. Soon, with a little help from corporate tax credits and incentives, everyone will have one and the airline industry will go kaput as a result; resulting in a nationalized system of air travel for those who can’t operate a flying car on their own. The days of the oligopoly are coming to an end and not a moment too soon.
