Love that suggestion. It would be a classy way of telling a passenger that the airline is aware of them playing the system without having to fear bad publicity! Simply brilliant. What?

The worse prospect is turn around time; 30 minutes charging for 1 hour of block time - that significantly increases turn around time. Modular batteries.

What would be even better is an order for the 777-9. Great way to go Korean Air. No doubt.
