大家好
Hello.
飞机航线非长即短
Plane rides are long except when they’re short.
一些航线比另一些航线短
Some are shorter than others
尤其最短的也就是最不长的航线最短
especially the shortest one which is the most not long.
谢谢大家 晚安
Thank you and goodnight.
妈呀 还有四分钟就要插广告了
Ah damn there’s four minutes left untilthe ad.
咱们言归正传吧
Let’s bring out the filler.
世界上最长的商业航线
The longest commercial flight in the world
长达9000英里 从卡塔尔的多哈
is the 9,000 mile haul from Doha, Qatar to
到新西兰的奥克兰
Auckland, New Zealand.
这要花费飞行员17个小时的时间
It takes an astronomical 17 hours
在这个时间里 你可以把世界上最短的航线
in which time you could fly the world’s shortest
飞上个1155次
flight 1,155 times
或者呼叫一次康卡斯特电信公司的客服
or call Comcast customer support once.
在许多情况下
In many cases it doesn’t make
短距离根本没必要坐飞机 还不如自驾
sense to fly a very short distance rather than drive
除非你非常享受和他人的身体靠的很近
unless you enjoy physical proximity to others and being
也很享受安检时被要求脱裤子
asked to take your pants off
而且你也可以搭乘周五晚上11点半的纽约地铁
but in such a case you could just ride the New York Subway at 11:30 on a Friday night.
在大多数情况下 在飞机起飞前至少两小时
In most cases you have to leave for the airport
你就得抵达机场
at least two hours before a flight
而两个小时你就可以驾驶120英里了
in which time you could drive 120 miles.
基于这个原因 低于120英里的航线
For that reason, flights under that distance are as rare
与“相当有趣”的女性访客一样稀少
as a female Half as Interesting viewer
因此 只有当开车出现障碍时
and so therefore they only really exist
人们才会选择坐飞机
if there’s an obstacle to driving.
举例来说 美国最短的商业航线
The shortest commercial flight in the US, for example,
是由旧金山到索诺玛县机场的航线
is from San Francisco to Sonoma County airport.
由美国联合航空公司负责
This flight is flown three times a day
一天飞三次
by bus company United Airlines and
从旧金山到索诺玛县
usually takes only 16 minutes from takeoff in San Francisco
一般要花费16分钟
to touchdown in Sonoma County.
两地之间驾车最多花费1个小时15分钟
At best the drive between these two places takes only an hour and fifteen minutes
但糟糕的是若遇上宇宙终极热寂 你就开不成车了
but at worst the heat death of the universe happens and you never make it.
这个航班的单程最低价为354美元
The flight costs a minimum of $ 354 one way
价格高到让你以为这个飞机只有你一个客人
which are prices high enough that you’d think these planes would fly empty.
但是有92年资历的
United Airlines has, though,
美国航空公司认识到
with its 92 years of experience learned
空机飞行对生意有害
that flying planes empty is bad for business.
这趟航班的秘密在于
The secret of this flight is
它并非是为往返旧金山和索诺玛县的乘客开通的
that it isn’t made for traveling between San Francisco and Sonoma County,
而是为其他县的乘客开通的
it’s made for people coming from the rest of the country
好让他们在此中转
then connecting onto this flight.
美国确实还有一条单程航线
United actually prices a one-way flight
该航线由纽约到索诺玛县 经停旧金山
from New York to Sonoma County via San Francisco
价格只有169美元
for only $169.
这种情况下 如果你已经飞了45分钟
In that case, if you have a 45 minute connection then the 16 minute flight,
接下来飞16分钟要远远比离开机场
it’s far quicker than leaving the airport,
租个汽车并从旧金山开往索诺玛县更快速
getting a rental car, and driving through San Francisco to Sonoma County.
在此话题上我们谈美国够多了
Now that’s enough talk of United.
我想要这个视频放飞自我
I want this video to take off and
而美国并不擅长此道
United’s just not very good at that.
索诺玛县的航线很短
While the Sonoma County flight is short,
但还是长过了7英尺
it’s longer than 7 feet.
世界上还有比这更短的航线
It’s also longer than the world’s shortest flight.
世界上最短的航线是岛屿之间的航线
All the world’s shortest flights are to or
因为汽车不能在水中行走
from islands as cars don’t work well
而船又很慢
on water, boats are slow,
所以这个航线虽然最短 但是很有意义——
and so even the shortest flights to islands make sense.
苏格兰有点像一个国家
Scotland is a country, kind of,
它有许多岛屿 准确地说有790个
that has loads of islands—790 to be exact.
很多有较多人居住的岛屿都很苏格兰
Many of the more inhabited islands have flights connecting them to
两大城市——爱丁堡和格拉斯哥之间用航线联系
the two largest Scottish cities—Edinburgh and Glasgow.
还有一些相当独特的航线值得一提
There are some pretty unique ones worth mentioning
比如这条从格拉斯哥到巴拉机场的航线
like the one from Glasgow to Barra Airport.
该航线长达140英里 它很短 但又不是最短
This flight flies 140 miles so its short though not excessively short.
和其他机场不同的是
More than any other airport,
抵达该机场的飞行员被要求停在海滩上
pilots have reported that Barra Airport is a beach to land at.
尽管很困难 但是该机场的跑道就建在海滩上
As in, its difficult but also that its runway is just a beach.
机场还有航站楼之类的设施
It has a terminal and everything,
但是该机场是世界上唯一一个
but its the only commercial airport in the world
飞机着陆点在海滩上的机场
where planes land on the beach and, of course,
当然啦 该机场的跑道在一天中仅存在几个小时
the runway only exists for a few hours per day
只有在低潮时 飞机才能停在此处
as the planes can only land at low tide.
但是这根本不是重点
But this is all beside the point because elsewhere
因为苏格兰确实有世界上的最短航线
in Scotland is the actual shortest commercial flight in the world.
奥克尼群岛位于苏格兰本土北部
The Orkney Islands lay north of mainland Scotland
常住人口有21000人
and are home to about 21,000 people.
这些人在英国比较默默无闻
They’re a relatively unknown bit of the UK
尽管已经定居此地8500年了
despite being inhabited for over 8,500 years.
奥克尼群岛的人口分布比较零散
The population of the Orkneys is well spread out across the islands
一些相对隔绝的岛 比如帕帕韦斯特雷岛
and some of the more isolated ones like Papa Westray
仅有90个居民 岛屿大小可比小商店
have only 90 residents and no more than one small store.
在许多情况下 要想接受医疗保健和教育
For healthcare and, in many cases, school,
人们就得去奥克尼群岛的首都柯克沃尔
people have to go to capital of the Orkneys—Kirkwall.
有船只可供乘坐
There are boats to there
但最快的交通工具就是火箭
but the fastest option to get between the islands is a rocket.
不开玩笑啦 第二选择是飞机
Barring that, the number two option is by plane.
比如 周一早上8:40 一架飞机从柯克沃尔出发
On Mondays, for example, a plane leaves Kirkwall at 8:40 am
那么13分钟后 飞行27英里之后
then 13 minutes later, after traveling 27 miles,
就抵达了维斯特雷
it touches down in Westray.
然后9:01的时候
Soon after at 9:01,
飞机就会启程飞上世界上的最短航线
it takes off on what is the shortest commercial flight in the world.
终点机场是帕帕韦斯特雷岛
The destination airport, Papa Westray,
途中仅跨越了1.5英里的水域
is a mere 1.5 miles away across a narrow body of water
所以飞行时间短到只有53秒
so this flight takes as little as 53 seconds
甚至还没有典型的机场跑道长
and crosses a distance shorter than a typical airport runway
这肯定是世界上最短的飞行了
definitively making it the shortest flight in the world.
而这个短途飞行的存在
Now, granted, this short flight exists
使来自韦斯特雷和帕帕韦斯特雷岛的乘客
so that passengers from both Westray and Papa Westray
能够乘坐同一班飞机飞抵柯克沃尔
can travel to Kirkwall on the same plane
所以虽然大多数人往返这两地时不选择乘坐飞机
so most people don’t just fly between these two islands
但如果他们想的话 是有这一项选择的
but if they did wanted to, they could.
票价是17英镑或22美元
At £17 or $ 22,
比阿帕奇攻击型直升机便宜
the ticket is cheaper than an Apache Attack Helicopter,
但这个航班平均15美元/英里
but this flight costs about $ 15 per mile
比纽约飞往伦敦头等舱的每英里票价
which is more per mile than it costs to fly
还要昂贵
from New York to London in first class.
如果你发现身处韦斯特雷的自己带了22美元
Now, if you find yourself in Westray with $ 22,
那你就可以做出选择——
you have a choice
你可以选择飞往帕帕韦斯特雷岛
—you could use it to fly to Papa Westray
你还可以用这钱买一个域名
or you could use it to purchase the domain
注册你那十亿 万亿或十二美元的公司
that is used to launch your billion or trillion or dozen dollar company.
如何你想好自己的未来公司的名称
If you have a potential business name you want to use in the future,
那么就在这个名称被占用前购买域名吧
it’s worth purchasing the domain now before its gone.
