Airbus announced the start of a new program concerning cargo hold sleeping compartments at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany. These compartments will be installed on A330’s to start because about 150 of them already have existing stairs to the crew rest area. Unfortunately the height of the compartment is only 5 feet 4 inches.
This would be a very interesting add on to the economy class experience, but it could potentially take away from demand for J.
I gotta admit this is pretty cool and am interested to see how successful it will become and whether or not airlines will implement this for either their crew or passengers.
Do you think this idea will be able to be implemented successfully?
