Sub-Orbital Airbus

A rocket-propelled craft that traverses long distances in a short time by ascending to a very high altitude and arcing in the direction of its destination. For coast-to-coast flights on the Continent, the sub-orbital airbus achieves an altitude of 50 Earth miles above sea level.

For oceanic voyages, the altitudinal lift peaks at 80 miles, which provides passengers a view of Luratia that only their astronauts know.
