Those long layovers spent slouched on uncomfortable airport chairs or, worse, on the carpets, may soon be over. Beginning this month, passengers transiting through the bustling Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport are able to catch a few winks before hopping on that connecting flight elsewhere.
The USA Today reports that the Minute Suite rooms, at 7 feet by 8 feet, are about the size of two office cubicles and equipped with a daybed sofa, pillows and blankets. They also have a system that tunes out noise. For the business traveler, the rooms come with a small desk, Internet access and a flat-screen 32-inch monitor hooked up to Direct TV. Similar nap rooms may soon appear at airports in other parts of the country.
