I'm intrigued. Not sure I'd prefer this over the short flight but I can see this being useful for regular commuters.

you've got to factor in as well that the flights can get pretty expensive (~$250); and you also waste a load of time during checking in, stuck on the runway waiting for it to take off etc.
I would LOVE this, but I worry about the legality/safety of having passengers both not wearing seat belts and lying flat. I'd guess that's the reason bunk/sleeper style travel has been limited to trains in the past.
Megabus has been doing this in the UK for awhile. It's called Megabus Gold. Albeit this is much more fancier.

Are the pods shared?
I take the train between SJ and LA every other month or so, and find this an interesting alternative (the Coast Starlight takes it's time - 10+hours). I'd want to know what controls they have in place to ensure fresh, awake drivers. Edit: There's also a curious lack of information on the website.
