Emirates to revolutionise air travel with windowless planes
LOOKING out of the window on a plane is one of the best things about flying — especially if you’ve got epic views over mountain ranges or cities like London, New York or Sydney.
But this might be set to change, as Emirates announce plans to build planes with virtual windows.
This means that when you look outside you can only see a projection instead of the real thing.
Emirates Have already unveiled designs for a new first class suite, which feature fibre optic cameras that beam an image of outside onto the wall.

President of Emirates Sir Tim Clark told BBC: “The quality of the imagery is so good, it’s better than with the natural eye. [It’s] as if you were in the window seat.
He continued: “The aircraft are lighter, the aircraft could fly faster, they’ll burn far less fuel and fly higher.”
Another benefit, according to Sir Tim, is that planes will be safer if the designs come into use.
Getting rid of windows would make planes more solid, getting rid of “structural weaknesses”.
Windowless planes would also reduce costs for airlines and consumers due to the reduced fuel consumption. Planes would also reduce their carbon dioxide output. | •
