    Aircraft manufacturer Airbus have revealed what they think plane interiors will look like in 40 years time.
    Their sleek concept aircraft has been showcased before, but this is the first time details of the interior have been released.
    Gone are the first, business and economy cabins, replaced with parts of the plane ordered by what people want to do - relaxation in the front, work in the back, and a fully stocked bar for socialising.
    The aircraft features transparent walls which change according to light conditions, holographic pop-up displays, and in-flight entertainment powered by the heat of passenger's bodies.
    Most of the basic technology such as moulding seats and 'head-up displays' already exist - but how Airbus plan to make the plant based, transparent 'skin' of the plane remains a mystery.
