What are the cons of a lifting-body aircraft?

Posted on Updated on

Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:

I think the worst thing for me if I were a passenger would be on an outer seat in the lifting body.

If I am farther away from the rotating longitudinal axis I will be moving up and down significantly with the rolling moment of the aircraft. This would get very uncomfortable during maneuvering and turbulence.
