British Airways has unveiled snaps of its new Club World seats.

Passengers who travel in business class will soon have access to their own private pods.

This plush zone, known as the Club Suite, promises plenty of room to move.

Each reclining chair also has direct access to the aisle, allowing holidaymakers to come and go as they please.

Every pod boasts its own charging points, vanity unit and mirrors.

They’re also located right by the aisle, preventing passengers from disturbing others when they head to the loo.

Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, said: “Each new suite has direct aisle access and comes with a personal door – design features which were incorporated as a direct result of the feedback we’ve had from our customers.”

When they’re not snoozing in the spacious Club World seats, customers can make the most of in-flight entertainment.

Business class flyers will have access to WiFi and 18.5 inch television screens.

The swanky seats will feature on the new Airbus A350 planes.

Business class customers should be able to give them a go from July.

Initially, the upgraded interior is only available on short haul flights between London and Madrid.

As cabin crew get used to the new layout, the suites will be rolled out further.

In October, they’re expected to feature on some long haul flights.

The transition could take a few years, so only lucky BA passengers will experience the chairs in the coming months.

Previously, Thomas Cook announced it would be launching “sleeper seats” in economy class.

These are 148.4cm long and 67cm deep, giving punters plenty of room to relax.

Passengers will also be provided with a mattress, fitted sheet, blanket and head rest to make their snooze as comfortable as possible.

While these are bound to make economy class more comfortable, they don’t come cheap.

Customers are required to reserve them before their flights – for a fee of £199.
