Mile-high workouts and sleeping pods could come to new Qantas jet ‘cargo class’

Would you spend a flight in the cargo hold with your luggage? Alan Joyce, chief executive officer of Australian airline Qantas Airways QAN, -2.15% , has some ideas on how to use the space that’s better known as the chilly spot where pets sometimes perish and battery fires sometimes start.

Speaking in a meeting with the Australia-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce in London on Tuesday, Joyce raised the idea of someday using the cargo hold for a new class of cabin, where some passengers could sleep in large pods and exercise.

The suggestion is part of Joyce’s plan for “Project Sunrise,” his goal to create a non-stop flight between Australia (from Sydney or Melbourne) to the UK and another direct flight to New York City within the next four years.
