One airline CEO, though, believes this has to change.

As Bloomberg reports, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce foresees a different way.

Imagine, he says, a short-haul version of, say, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It could carry perhaps 275 passengers.

More importantly -- for me, at least -- it could have two aisles.

Personally, I used to go out of my way to fly American Airlines from SFO to JFK specifically because it flew twin-aisled Boeing 767s.
