This was their April Fools day announcement.

Glass doesn't allow for the expansion metal does to allow for anything larger than the cockpit or passenger windows.

Also: you'd only be able to see the cargo hold.

Sometimes (Usually in Hmong people) the human body accidentally sends glycine, the chemical causing paralysis to muscles as you sleep, straight to vital organs. Effectively killing itself.

Imagine having to use the restroom, but being afraid of heights.
"Guess I just gotta **** the seat".

Imagine having a telescope and looking at that thing, then you see up one of the hot flight attendant's skirt.

Really? People believe this? Okay, first off, there's luggage under the plane, and a pane of glass of that size and thickness would be so heavy that the plane wouldn't be able to take off.

Or y'know, you could separate the luggage bay into compartments (which they already do so taking a strip from the middle would be fine.) And use two panes of perspex or acryllic with a vaccum in between.

Really, it would be fairly easy to make from an engineering point of view.

Didn't a structural engineering student explain how this was impossible the last time someone posted this?

Imagine if the glass broke. No one will be able to use the bathroom or get refreshments.
