Couchette airline style
I never believe an airline mock-up of a possible plane layout. I will only believe my eyes when I board the plane and see the truth. But there is a cute idea coming out of Lufthansa according to News.com.au to have couchette style sleeping in economy class seats for the Airbus A380. You can see the plan for three by three stacked beds from the picture above. I am sure there are a 101 safety reasons why this will never happen.
UPDATE - Air New Zealand is also seeking a PR push through announcing its "contemplation" of sleeping pods. I still do not believe any of this will happen.
