Say goodbye to jetlag! Commute to work across the ocean or take a day-trip to see the world at twice the speed of sound on the Boom XB-1. Supersonic flight has existed for over 50 years, but the technology to make it efficient and mainstream has only recently been accepted by regulators. The all-business-class interior of the XB-1 is designed for comfort, privacy and productivity. Window or aisle? No need to choose — each seat has a large, personal window and direct aisle access. No more painful, 3-day trips to make a single meeting. Leave from San-Francisco a whole day later and still make your morning meeting in Tokyo. No destination will feel out of reach.
