Tell me where you are flying and I’ll tell you how comfortable your trip will be. Everyone's gotten used to the fact that airlines have made passenger comfort a priority on long-haul routes. We've come to expect better seats and better service, especially on international flights. However, it’s a different story if we're talking about short-haul flights. For quick flights, like between the capitals in Europe – standard service is somehow seen as good enough. And if a traveler has no choice but to take a short-haul red-eye flight to get to meetings early in the morning? That's just something you have to calculate into your plans.

Transaero Airlines has been flying between Moscow and London since 1998 and has had enough time to notice that more than half of all the passengers on the route are business travelers. Quite a lot of them take a flight departing from Heathrow in the evening to get to meetings in Moscow early in the morning.

With a view to establishing the maximum level of comfort for those traveling on business, at the beginning of 2013 Transaero plans to install new ultramodern "cocoon-style" flat-bed seats on its Boeing 737-800 aircraft that fly from London to Moscow overnight. The spacious new seats, which recline to a fully 180-degree flat position, provide maximum comfort even on a short trip. A personal area for the passenger is secured by a partition.

So, who says you can't get comfortable on a short flight? A good night's sleep is half way to success for any business meeting. Why don't you give it a try?
