Note:Aviation rules stipulate that airlines must provide one flight attendant for every 50 passengers. So a plane with 200 passengers on board must have at least four flight attendants.

However, a plane with just 199 seats in it can legally have three flight attendants on board. Ryanair is reportedly interested in Comac's willingness to build a 199 seater jet.

Already they are working out ways to save money ...how would 3 attendants cope with 199 passengers in an emergency?

I saw this report on sky News and the Plane was designed by BRITISH FIRM , one innovation is the seats can be swiveled around so a family of 4 , or 4 friends can sit facing each other ........ great idea.

China is also forging ahead with their high speed trains, this Country will be the most powerful in the World , streets ahead of Russia in investment.

Apparently there was a crash of two trains a couple of years ago , but the Chinese have learned and have every confidence in these new trains and track.

I read a long time ago that the "yellow race will rule the World"........China has come a long way since the cheap stuff they used to make .
