Airbus is making bunk beds in jet cargo holds

European jet manufacturer Airbus is going to add bed modules to the cargo hold of its Airbus A330 widebody jet starting in 2020. I’m getting sleepy just looking at the photo on Bloomberg.

Under Airbus’s plan, the sleeping berths would be installed as modules that could be quickly replaced with regular cargo fittings during an aircraft’s typical airport turnaround. Holds have in the past been designed as cabin crew rest areas and for ablutions.
