Is this the future of air travel? BA images reveal robotic air stewardesses...

They may look like sketches from a sci-fi film - but these futuristic images are in fact a glimpse of what air travel could look like in the coming decades.  

The series of photographs, which feature in a British Airways exhibition at London's Saatchi Gallery, are inspired by a study undertaken by BA into the future of flyingcould look like in the coming decades. 

One image includes a robotic air stewardess, who's able to interpret every passengers' needs through emotional analysis and cater to this by bringing each person what they need before they've even asked. 

The AI, known as AVII, would produce a log for the cabin crew based on individual personal requirements, enabling them to build a stronger relationship with each traveller and deliver intuitive service.

Another set of images reveals potential plans for Curio, a hypersonic aircraft – meaning it exceeds the speed of sound – which circumnavigates the world, collecting travellers from ''megacities' as it flies. 

Numerous smaller modular crafts would transport customers from their own homes in each of those megacities directly to the larger aircraft, all interlocking into assigned compartments.
