Passengers will get a stunning bird’s eye view
The next time you fly you could do it with your head in the sky.
Windspeed Technologies just announced the Sky Deck with seats that rotate 360 degrees and UV protection and coating that’s strong enough to protect you if happen to run into any real birds up in the sky, but it doesn’t come cheap.
The price to add the Sky Deck to planes could be anywhere from $8 – $25 million (£5.34 – £16.6million).
Since the pod uses more fuel and costs so much passenger planes could offset the cost by adding a premium for passengers who want to pay for a room with a view and the company is pretty sure that people will be willing to pay.
They said: “We wanted to come up with a product that would provide a higher level of entertainment to reduce the boredom of long flights.”
According to the Mail Online, the teardrop shape of the capsule has been designed so as not to interfere with the airflow on the plane.
Shakil Hussain, Windspeed’s CEO, said: “The concept attracted a lot of attention at the recent conference of the National Business Aviation Association, in Las Vegas.
“A large aircraft manufacturer in Europe plans to start offering the SkyDeck to potential customers soon.”
So the next time you’re flying you might be in with a chance of a bird’s eye view but it’ll definitely cost you.
