With all this talk about all the ways you can lose your seat on an airplane, let’s not lose sight of one fundmental truth: no matter the class, airplane seats are not the comfiest, especially if you’re trying to get some shut-eye. 

Mattress company Simba agrees, and they’ve conceived a first- and business-class cabin that transforms from seat to a soporific “sleep ecoystem,” complete with  complete with noise-mollifying sensors, air purifiers, mood lighting and even scent enhancements. Then there’s the mattress, consisting of 2,500 air-coils, pocket springs and memory foam.

In short: this thing looks comfier than most bedroom set-ups.

The video above shows Real Madrid footballer Gareth Bale relaxing in the prototype, and it was Bale that initiated the conversation with Simba about bringing their mattress to planes as high-quality Z’s are integral to his performance on the field.

They’re out pitching their Air Hybrid airplane cabins to commercial and private airlines now. Hopefully they bite.

Because airplane comfort is something we can all get behind.
