Kind of a salty tweet from Bezos and crew, but I guess when you're competing to sell quarter of a million dollar thrill rides to the ultrarich, you gotta expect some shade-throwing in the ad campaigns...
Similarly, the Virgin Galactic engineer narrating the launch today kept dropping subtle hints about how reassuring it must be for the passengers to know they have crew alongside them for the whole ride. (Blue Origin sightseeing flights will be entirely spam-in-a-can autopilot rides. I guess Bezos trusts his robots since he has warehouses full of them.)
