Everyone loves to hate air travel. And why not? The cost of the average flight is up almost $100 from 20 years ago, and of the nearly six and half million domestic flights in 2013, one in five were late. But it's not all bad.

Or enjoy travel on the cheap with Air Asia, Jetstar, or Virgin America. Maybe one day soon electric planes will take us where we want to go. But for now, SkySpark's eco-friendly crafts only hold one pilot and no passengers.
