I love airships and would love to see that get built but I keep seeing these concepts and they never go anywhere.

This has been an idea that I've kicked around forever- cross country excursion cruises on giant airships. I've imagined all this stuff: observation decks, open air patios, staterooms, the works. Imagine crossing the country at a nautical pace only just a thousand feet or less above the terrain. You could visit cities just like ports of call, or spend whole days just sittin' on the deck havin' a cigar, and a beer...

...or buy a cottage by the sea for the same price as that ticket, kick back for the rest of your life, and leave it for the kids to love. STROYP

Let's see- a couple dozen folks on a week long excursion on a cross country zeppelin with outdoor observation deck, AND bungee jumping. Call Agatha Christie!
