If successful, CheapTickets will offer anesthesia flights as an additional service CheapTickets.de is testing possibilities of “Flying under anesthesia”
CheapTickets.de will perform a special test on June 30th: “Flying under anesthesia”. Travellers can sign up voluntarily for this via the website CheapTickets.de. Thirty people will be selected and placed prior to takeoff in a light sleep (light anesthetic). This test by CheapTickets will examine whether anesthesia can be a means for people to be more relaxed and rested when they arrive at their destination. Being sedated may help fight fatigue, jet lag, annoying fellow passengers, being forced to sit for a long period of time, turbulences or simply against the fear of flying. The first results are expected to be released in July or August.
