Ah, the future - we can see it now......
"Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your captain speaking.
This flight is being remotely controlled from Luton Airport where your co-pilot and myself are sitting comfortably.
When your co-pilot and I go off shift in about half an hour, your flight will, hopefully, be taken over by someone else, assuming they can get to the airport through the traffic on the M1.
The entire flight is controlled from this base by remote control via computers and wireless technology. Everything has been checked to ensure your safety and absolutely nothing can go wrong, ...go wrong, ...go wrong, ...go wrong, ...go wrong, ...go wrong"
