Airbus has announced that its taking a different direction from other airline companies when it comes to designing planes. Instead of cramming more seats into the same small space it wants to make comfortable-looking dorm-style cabins with beds.

Airbus is working to design ‘lower-deck modules’ on its A330 and A350 XWB airliners where passengers can stretch out and sleep through flights.

Other concepts the company is considering include playrooms, conference rooms, and bars for their airliners.
