JetBlue now has nap pods at JFK airport - Apr. 19, 2016

I would like to have one in my office...
JetBlue is making it easier for weary travelers to take a quick nap before takeoff.

The airline unveiled four JetNap EnergyPods in its terminal at JFK airport in New York City.

The pods, which are created by New York-based MetroNaps and look like a futuristic reclining chair, play rhythms designed to help bring relaxation and reduce distractions. When nap time is over, the chair wakes the traveler up with a combination of lights, music and vibrations.

Passengers will be able to snooze in the pods for free for 20 minutes.
JetBlue (JBLU) said the goal is to give fliers the chance to recharge.
"We are always focused on making the most comfortable experience for our customers, both on and off the plane," said Icema Gibbs, JetBlue's director of corporate social responsibility, in a statement."

Good idea, but, since it takes me 10-15 min to even fall asleep, these pods wouldn't be of much use for me.

That is a legitimate fear, too. And I don't know how they could reasonable get around that point.

Bums can't get in past security. You need an actual ticket and ID to get inside the terminal.
