It's the fastest, it's the statistically safest, and some could argue the most efficient.

...what more reasons do you need?

Airtravel is the best form of transportation?

There are people who need the speed of airtravel, but some others will take the boat, or a train. It depends where you need it for, if you like it, if you can afford it etc etc... For us A.netters is the perfect way to travel, for many others it's not.

Calling Air Travel the best form of transportation is nonsens. It is the best for certain kinds of transportation. But for shopping I prefer my car, to work I use a commuter train and to Australia I fly.

Well I mean for those distances where train and bus could compete against aviation. For example, PHL-YYZ or something like that.

Because people prefer to sit in a coach seat for 3 hrs rather than in a coach bus for 20. Big grin

Try driving from New York to Phoenix using such panoramic routes as Interstate-80 in Pennsylvania and Interstate-40 in Arizona, you'll understand why flying is amazing.

Air travel is not the most efficent form of transportation, Trains, Ships and Pipelines are clearly superior.

Air Travel is however the quickest and the most expensive form.

However with the execption of shipping, it does require much less infastructure to support, you aren't building miles of rails and roads.

Where train could compete with air travel air travel is not the BEST form of transportation, because otherwise it wouldn't compete.
Sometimes air travel is better and other times train or coach.

For PHL-YYZ air travel doesn't compete with coaches or trains. I would guess both have an combined market share of under 5%. But air tavel between WAS and NYC competes with coaches and trains. And there where some topics in the past which discussed when which mode of transportation is favourable.
