A pool on a plane? Emirates pulls April Fools' prank, announces plane with pool and gym

If there's one thing the current airplane experience is missing, it's a dip in a pool, mid-flight.

Emirates wants to right that wrong — on the day right before April Fools' Day — with a new design for the world's largest commercial airplane.

A tweet from the airline reveals very little, but what it does share would be incredibly exciting had this not been a prank: Not only do they want to add a swimming pool to the airplane, but they also promise a game room, gym and a park.

That's a pretty tall order, given we all get over-excited when there's a in-flight bar onboard.

Forget complaining about leg room — you're about to experience a whole new level of envy if this swimming pool thing becomes a reality.

Oh, if only this were a thing some airline would actually make happen. April Fools', go away.
