While some airlines try as close as possible to use the available space of the plane, put as many passengers as possible, others bet on comfort. The latter is particularly relevant for the many hours of air travel – people get tired of sitting in one place. The recently proposed concept of the sleeping compartment on the plane, and another option was the airplane with a public recreation area.
This modification for passenger ships was developed by the designer Ross burns (Ross Burns) of the company Aim Altitude; it was the profile on the Aircraft Interiors Expo. The idea itself is implemented for a long time: the number of Aviacompany there are “side bars”, where passengers in premium classes can spend time in flight. Aim Altitude has previously developed the same locations for Emirates and Virgin Atlantic, but a new project, called Ultraflex, significantly expands the capabilities of travellers and, in addition, it is aimed at holders of tickets of any class.
Hall Ultraflex, under which will be assigned part of the aircraft may consist of four compartments. One of them will be located the stands of self-service with food and drinks and comfortable sofas, the other for computer work, the third is a café – bar, where you can view sporting events. The fourth flexible space with folding furniture can be used as a place for yoga, meditation or prayer, doing gymnastics, or an intimate lunch.
The developer emphasizes that the main difference from similar existing proposals in the field of air travel – the flexibility of a small space, allowing you to make it multifunctional. His visit will all the passengers, advance booking time, and selecting the type of training. This makes it easier to transfer the flight length of over 12 hours, to spend time interesting and useful.
