An airline has introduced cosy lie-flat seats in economy – but they are only for children.

They have been launched by French carrier Joon and cost £18 per person.

The crew transform the seats into beds by using the headrests to fill the space between the rows, then placing a mattress over the top – and voila.

However, Joon, which is owned by Air France, is not the only airline to offer lie-flat beds in economy.

In 2011, Air New Zealand launched its Skycouch, which allows a row of three economy seats to be converted into a flat surface.

Children used to be required to be seated on a guardian’s lap when the seat belt sign was on.

But now thanks to a new harness and belt designed for infants, they can rest without interruption.
