This is one crazy idea and also looks like an engineer's / logistician's nightmare & dream all in one go.

Any thoughts?

The lack of circular cross section causes issues with pressurization, the fact that it isn't integrated with the frame probably means it takes a hit to structural strength, and as a whole the idea is bound to add a lot of weight. I also don't see that it saves the passengers much time.
