Rocket Science

This from the USA Today:

"DALLAS — American Airlines (AMR) will test fuel-saving technology and tactics on a Paris-to-Miami flight this week that the carrier and federal aviation officials hope will help make the case for a new navigation system.

The plane on the Thursday flight will take a direct route guided by Global Positioning System, or GPS, technology instead of staying within the usual jetliner paths across the Atlantic."

I hope nobody gets paid for having come up with this gem. I don't know much about aviation but this has got to be the most obvious good idea to come along in a while.
