The seat itself moves forwards 11inches (28cm) allowing you to talk face-to-face with your travel companion next door. If you’re travelling alone, the seat sits back, cocooning you in your own private pod and away from any prying eyes. The seat also lies out flat, making a two meter bed for a good night’s sleep.

The seat also comes with a 15.4inch screen delivering TV and audio on demand. The extensive library consists of 100 films, 500 TV shows, 888 CDs, 22 radio channels and 70 games so you’re sure to find soemthing to keep you entertained. If however, that isn’t quite enough there is a port allowing you to connect your iPhone or iPod to stream videos or music. There is also a USB port and international plug socket for charging devices such as tablets, phones and laptops.

Other features include areas for storing personal items, a shoe closet in the base of the seat and a vanity mirror.
