Sleeping in the cargo hold: Airbus plans to have cabins below deck

On long journeys simply go down the stairs and sleep comfortably in the cargo hold: Airbus wants to enable this in its long-haul aircraft A330 in the next couple of years.

Passengers may soon be able to retire to sleep in the cargo hold on long journeys. The aircraft manufacturer Airbus wants to create beds in the belly of the machines.

The sleeping cabins are to be offered from 2020 onwards for the twin-jet long-range jet A330, as the company announced at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg.

The underdeck beds for passengers are therefore planned as modules, which can be easily replaced if necessary against normal freight containers.
