The plane manufacturer has released pictures of a futuristic jet ahead of the Paris Air Show. The images show a transparent cabin, allowing passengers to enjoy a much wider view while on a flight.
And if that wasn't unusual enough, the innovative design also aims to offer services with a difference on board, with personalised zones replacing traditional cabin designs.
Passengers will be able to play virtual golf in the aircraft's "interactive zone", or relax in the "vitalising zone" by breathing vitamin and antioxidant-enriched air.
Charles Champion, Airbus Executive Vice President Engineering, commented: "Our research shows that passengers of 2050 will expect a seamless travel experience while also caring for the environment.
"The Airbus Concept Cabin is designed with that in mind, and shows that the journey can be as much a voyage of discovery as the destination. Whichever flight experience is chosen, the passenger of 2050 will step out of the Airbus Concept Cabin feeling revitalised and enriched."
Take a look at more pictures of the Concept Cabin below:

And finally, the plane could have a gaming/entertainent zone, where they can play virtual golf!!
How class would that be???
On a clear night you could see right into space, and get a good view of the ISS or some other satellites or meteors!!
