The good thing about traveling in a bus or train is that you can lie down and sleep comfortably during the journey. There is a facility to reach far away places in the plane, but there you cannot sleep comfortably lying down. But now soon pods will be available for lying down comfortably in economy class of aircraft. However it will still take time. New Zealand airline Air New Zealand is working on this project. The company said that work on this Skynest concept is going on for the last five years. And it will be completely ready by 2024. The seats will be completely flat, made up of original mattresses as well as cooling pillows and bedding, and will be located at the rear of the aircraft, just behind the premium economy cabin.
