A Sleeping Pod for Economy Flyers


Air New Zealand has filed a patent application for the Skynest sleeping pod, which would allow economy passengers to stretch out and during long-haul flights

One pod contains a total of six beds, arranged into two bunks with three levels each. The beds themselves are 200 centimetres long, 58 centimetres wide and are completely flat.
