Buy a car via in-flight shopping!

According to Bloomberg, China’s Spring Airlines Co., the nation’s biggest privately-owned carrier, plans to start selling Chinese-branded automobiles on flights as early as next month. Zhang Wu’An, a spokesman at the Shanghai-based company, said the cars will be priced from about 100,000 yuan ($16,000), but details on makes and models have not yet been publicized.

Whoever said you couldn’t buy almost anything through in-flight shopping?

More seriously, why would anyone want to buy a car at 35,000-feet? Here’s a thought…

“Car sales are very popular in Shanghai and our passengers can have time during their flight to study details of the models available.”

Genius! Plus, “in-air discounts” may also be given out to eligible passengers (yes, I’ll be getting on the next Spring Airlines flight just for those…)
