Inflight lounge areas were once the epicenter of flying, with piano bars, extensive space for couches, chairs and tables, extravagant dining options and so much more. Today, only the larger aircraft (mainly the Dreamliners and A380s) can support onboard lounge spaces, something Emirates, Qantas and Qatar are well known for.

While some airlines are reinventing lounge and bar spaces on smaller aircraft, other companies are reimagining these areas to completely new levels. From spas to playrooms, here are the inflight entertainment concepts revealed at the Crystal Cabin Awards we can’t get enough of.

Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP), a sector of the UAE government, developed various entertainment concept rooms for airplanes, one of which is a spa (pictured above). The idea here is to provide travelers with a place where they can be pampered and relax at the same time—whether it’s a massage, manicure/pedicure or facial.

Another entertainment concept designed by DAEP is an onboard bar that extends out to a small dining area. Travelers can either grab their favorite drink or devour a mouthwatering meal created by an onboard chef. Every detail counts as well—from the colors to the decor—in order to exhibit the type of luxury found only on private jets.

Last but not least on DAEP’s entertainment concept list for airplanes is the play zone, featuring interactive games, playpens and other activities to keep the little ones busy.

It’s important to note that these entertainment zones are not supposed to be in a single aircraft altogether, rather the concept is to be able to reconfigure the airplane in a way that will suit the passengers onboard. These are modular spaces that can be replaced in several hours, eliminating the need to develop completely different airplanes.

The question remains, can this concept take off? When Emirates first put out its A380 with the onboard bar, skeptics were sure it wouldn’t work, but lo and behold, it did. So who’s to say this can’t? In an ever-changing world, we never know what can come to be.
