It really doesn't make any sense does it. I mean, there's the carpet, then the floorboards. After that there are the walls of the luggage
compartment and if you're sitting in the middle, then there are the fuel tanks below you. Even with the walls, you still have to deal with the
plastic/composite sidewall covers and then the insulation that's between them and the fuselage. Just because the fuselage can go transparent,
doesn't mean all this other stuff
will magically become see through as well.
I just don't see how making the fuselage transparent is going to do anything for the passengers inside, unless Airbus plans to completely reinvent
how aircraft interiors are put together, but I don't see that happening.
