WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS: Here are a few things that are common sense, but you gracefully skipped over (and so did Elon), that would put a GIGANT cross sign over this idea: 1. Pressure change. People would arrive at their destinations with bleeding ears, with a chance of loosing their hearing. You know how your ears can hurt really bad when the airplane is landing, right? Well... they are decending ONLY at around 3m/s. A motherf*****g rocket would decend at 53m/s... In free fall... So in reality it would be much faster if the rocket is being propelled lol This would make untrained people's ears BLOOOOOOWWW!!! 2. Maybe that might be something that Space X could work on, but the amount of "g" force that would be present during take off and landing would surely make people pass out... 3. Zero G - Combined with points 1 and 2, would have a happy fellow passenger exited for a trip in space, just 40 minutes later, begging for mercy to the sweet death. Like... Zero-G can make you feel dizzy af alone; Than add to that a contest of "Who can swallow their saliva fast enough to not have their ears bleeding", and a pinch of "80% of your blood in your legs" high g's situation... And you have a PERFECTLY SAFE, REVOLUTIONARY, AFFORDABLE, FAST, AIRRRRR TrrrrAVELLLLL! No, but seriously like wtf why is noone adressing these?

Virgin Galactic's solution is better. However, Space X cannot be a people transport company and a manufacturer, there's a reason Boeing and Airbus don't have their own airline carrier company, they only manufacture the planes they cannot transport people as well. Spacex would have to sell spacecraft to major carriers.

I think it wouldn’t replace entirely the air flight industry as we know it, but I’m pretty sure it would have plenty other uses than just taking average people from one country to another. It’s scientific, social and historical potencial is enormous. This a technology that worth’s the price, the time and the effort to overcome the obstacles. Above everything, it worth’s the hope.

The concept of passenger rockets as they exist today is not economically feasible, regardless of what SpaceX might be proposing. World governments will never license such a passenger system either. It's hard enough just getting governments to permit the use of spacecraft for transporting astronauts/cosmonauts. For the present, and until some new form of propulsion comes about, expect to travel through Earth's atmosphere on some form of air transport, such as jets, and possibly supersonic, or even hyper sonic versions in the near future.

Rocket launches seem oldie-worldie and a heck of a lot more dangerous than jet-liners. You're still not getting past the engine trust system using tones of fuel to get you places. Magnetic levitation and propulsion through Space-Time is the way forward and a million times faster. Those brains over at NASA and Area 51 know all about it but won't introduce it because it would wipe out all traditional commercial transportation which would be a financial mess. Space X knows this but can't change things. Through Space-Time, passengers aboard the craft probably won't even feel the inertia Gforces create because friction would be eliminated due to superior technopoly. Just imagine traveling halfway around the world within seconds and not even feeling it. It would take you longer to pack your suitcase.

Quick answer..... NO! No airline company would benifit from this and it´s the same reason that the concorde disappeared . Why do you think we never had another supersonic plane? I mean the concorde made it´s first flight in 1973... The maintanance and fuel costs are too high for it to be benificial. Also.... for it to go supersonic it needs to be slimmer, lighter and only carries about a 100 passengers.

I'm wondering, if alien spacecraft technology is real (if aliens really are visiting Earth, yada yada) basically a lot of these videos/technologies will become obsolete - that is, if we can harness I think some people call zero-point energy or something like that.. or let's just say in layman's terms, levitation; antigravity might even be a better term. If that's real and can be achieved without too much expense, etc., it will be possibly the biggest technological revolution in human history (and change air travel, of course space travel, I suppose, military operations, etc., etc.). If it's impossible (and doesn't/can't exist in this universe) then, you can simply neglect this comment :-)

I really hope that this is created as a “second option” rather than a replacement. Yes, it would cut time on travel, but I think flying is very fascinating. I really don’t care how long it takes, but I think hovering 35,000 feet above ground is an appropriate height for people to fly in a metal tube for 5 hours rather than risking to suffer in space. Yes, there will be safety features, but it will take a longggg time to implement this.

Rocket passenger transport will be developed but somewhat different than envisioned. Predictions: Launches will be much gentler than the 3 g F9 and potentially BFR launches. The passenger / cargo 2nd Stage will look and fly more like an airplane and land on a runway but with powered retro burns for air braking prior to touch down. Desert areas with low population densities will become prime launch and landing sites. Barge landing sites will prove to be too inefficient and too small. How many rocket transport vehicles can a barge simultaneously accommodate? Look at today's commercial airports; they can handle hundreds of planes an hour with dozens on the ground at any one time. Yes some rich will take the ride but private jet taxis are going to beat out the BFR for those passengers. The ease of just going to a local airport and flying in comfort from destination to destination will prove more appealing than the egress time required to get to and board a rocket.
