The Most Luxurious Airline Seat Would Offer a Private Canopy View

Sit down inside the plane? That's for the proles. For the ultimate luxury air travel experience, there's the SkyDeck.

Windspeed, an aerospace start-up in Everett, Washington, is developing ways of making air travel more scenic. It has two designs called SkyDeck. One offers an stairwell from the fuselage to an enclosed canopy on the top of the plane. The other is a private elevator that rises all the way up and rotates on command.

Windspeed says that the designs should be completely safe in many planes, from wide-body jetliners to executive transports. The bubble is made with the same material as supersonic fighter jet canopies, so it's safe against air hazards at lower speeds, such as bird strikes.

Would you like to try it?
