GoSleep Sleeping Pods are Perfect for Weary Travelers, Just Not Claustrophobic Ones
May 17th, 2013
Airport chairs aren’t made with long-term comfort in mind. That’s probably because they really weren’t made for that purpose. Unfortunately, canceled and delayed flights are becoming a more common occurrence and that usually means a few uncomfortable hours or even a night spent waiting at the airport.
Lucky for you if you end up in a hotel with sleep pods, like the Abu Dhabi Airport.
The oblong GoSleep pods are lined up off to one side so you’ll be in the company of other sleepy, weary travelers. Each one is equipped with a chair that converts into a flat bed and comes with a roller blind that can be pulled down to guarantee some privacy. The pods will eventually offer electronic gadget charging and internet access to occupants as well.
These aren’t the first sleeping compartments that have been installed in transportation hubs, although they definitely are one of the more compact and comfortable looking designs out there.
Use of the GoSleep pods will run you approximately $12 an hour.
