12 APR 2018: Airbus has found a new way for passengers to stretch out - as long as they're willing to sleep in the cargo hold. The European airplane maker has partnered with France's Zodiac Aerospace to create cargo sleeper berths for Airbus A330 jets. They'll be available to airlines by 2020.

The mini-cabins - or passenger modules, as Airbus (EADSF) and Zodiac (ZODFF) describe them -- will sit directly on the cargo floor and will not affect the loading of freight and luggage.

Airlines will be able to swap the sleeping modules in and out of planes in place of regular cargo containers, the companies said.
