A Smoker's Airline?

A variety of newspapers and news services reported this weekend that a German entrepreneur plans to launch an airline that caters exclusively to smokers. Smintair - Smoker's International Airways is set to debute next summer with a route between Dusseldorf in Germany and Tokyo. "The airline will not offer economy-class tickets, but will target business people who enjoy smoking - and who are willing to pay for some extra pampering," the BBC reports. "Smoking will be allowed in all 138 seats on board - and there will be extra leg room, because jumbo jets normally accommodate more passengers." (Here's the BBC's report in full.)

What do you think: a brilliant idea, or one whose time has come... and gone?
