I admit this is going to give me nightmares for some time. Anybody scared of flying will have nightmares – a transparent plane, it seems! It is easier to accept transparent cars but not something that is not grounded. Although Airbus only plans to launch it by 2050, the very thought is nerve-tingling. Through the aircraft cabin, passengers can see the bright sky (what about when there is a storm!). There would be intelligent interactive games, for instance, virtual golf! First, business and economy cabins will be bifurcated into cabins offering ‘zones’ of relaxation.
Passengers can do all sorts of daily activities as the cabin will ‘identify and respond’ to the travelers’ needs. There will also be a ‘smart tech zone’ where passengers can enjoy a complete luxury service as if on the ground.
The Airbus Concept Cabin was unveiled at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London.
