Could this be the future of luxury air-travel?

This new airship concept, being developed by London-based art director Tino Schaedler and designer, Michael J Brown is the equivalent of a flying spa.

The Stratocruiser Zeppelin travels at double the speed of an average blimp

The Strato Cruiser, nicknamed the "lifestyle zeppelin", is a space-age style helium filled airship where guests can eat gourmet food, enjoy all the benefits of a spa and request tunes from a resident dj.

Passengers will also be able to take advantage of regular yoga classes and personal trainers.

Composed of a carbon fibre skin, the ship is intended to bring new levels of speed and safety to travel in a way that's eco-friendly. Private suites will be in the belly of the ship it cruises at double the speed of a convention blimp.

The spacious airship will offer a disco, swimming pool and private suites in the belly of the cruiser

When the design is realised it is scheduled to offer medium-haul transatlantic, transpacific, trans-American and Europe-Middle East routes.
