The perfect airplane would have a transparent floor and ceiling – so passengers could enjoy spectacular views of the landscape and sky, according to a survey by Skyscanner.
It would also boast luxury capsule-style bunk beds, an on-board cocktail bar and cinema, showers, massage chairs and free use of iPads.
However, according to the travel comparison site – who questioned holidaymakers about their dream aircraft – above all passengers just want to enjoy a little peace and quiet during their flight.
Whilst only five per cent dreamed up the unusual transparent aircraft floor, a whopping 26 per cent wanted facilities to reduce noise and annoyance cause by flying families.
A further 18 per cent wanted sound-proof children’s sections and eight per cent longed for anti-kick seats.
Mary Porter, a Skyscanner representative, commented: “As a mother myself I am well aware of the stress that travelling with children can lead to – both for the parents themselves and those seated around them so I am not surprised that sound-proof sections and anti-kick seats scored so highly, and confirms the findings of our previous survey that shows children on planes are a contentious issue.
“Sadly as appealing as many of these features sound, we are not aware of any airline’s plans to include them at the moment – although for those fliers lucky enough to fly upper class some dream features such as beds, showers and cocktail bars are indeed be part of their luxury flying experience. For the rest of us it will continue to be just a dream.”
