How about flying hydrogen

Everyone is worried about the amount of energy it takes to compress hydrogen. I am not.
Here is a far better idea for moving hydrogen around the world.
Massive airships, where the cargo is also the lift.
Fly to the site, hook up the airship and drain it, then ship the empty airship back to its fill location.
Some compression of hydrogen can be done in the envelope to increase the energy density, without the massive losses of compression.
these airships might be massive or a flock of them might fly in formation with the lead ship crewed and the others autonomous.
Small airships might take crew between the large ones to do inspections and repair.
Now tell me how crazy I am.
