New SKYDECK “BUBBLE” Will Allow Flight Passengers The ULTIMATE WINDOW SEAT

VIA| When I was seven-years-old, I boarded my first plane, and I can honestly say, the buzz of being 40,000ft high and looking out of the window for the very first time simply can’t be replicated. However, a few flights later, and the shine starts to wear off.

I guess it’s something to do with the window being the size of a letterbox, and the fact the wing then takes up 70% of your view.

Well, thanks to Windspeed Technologies, there is now a plane that can offer incredible, 360-degree views, that promises to “kill the boredom of long flights”, and allow passengers to feel like they are on top of the world.

 

CEO of Windspeed Tech, and the inventor of the SkyDeck, Shakil Hussain, recently spoke toMashable about the future of his design;

“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.”

EasyJet? I doubt it…

Although, if you’re a little nervous when it comes to flying, you might not want to watch this passenger video which shows a jumbo jet coming to a screeching halt because of a short runway.

According to the company, those who purchase the design will have the option of accessing the one or two seater pod via an elevator or staircase.

The patent for the design is still currently pending, although it has been estimated that SkyDeck will cost between $8 million and $25 million (£5.34 million – £16.6 million), all depending on the size of the plane etc.

At those prices, don’t expect to be allowed access to the luxurious seats with your economy ticket. Despite the inevitable high cost, I can’t deny how spectacular it would be to view the world in a way that only a handful of people ever have before.

Although, now that I think about it, I knew the bubble design reminded me of something;
