Airships/blimps. If a modern company today came along and made them luxurious and nice, then they would almost be like going on a sky cruise.

Basically a cruise ship in the air that can take you through the Rockies and stop at several tourist attractions. Sign me up.

Interestingly, there is research being conducted. They may make a comeback at some fields.

They are doing this ever since the demise of the Zeppelins. No results worth speaking about it yet, unfortunately. There used to be even plans for atomic airships, with nuclear reactor aboard and gardens and penthouses on top, but nothing ever came out of it.

Think the main problem with this is you are still at the mercy of mother nature a lot more than you would be in a plane. I remember seeing a show about rigid airships and if the got up in bad updraft they would get carried up to high and the helium would leak out. After the helium would leak out the ship crashed and everyone would die.

That being said if they brought them back id gladly take a trip on one
