This jet’s retired to a pimped out pop-up hotel complete with private cinema, two kitchens and a whopping eight bathrooms.
Win a chance to sleep on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ aeroplane apartment
A lot of us would not really associate a plane with a great night’s sleep but KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and AirBnB might just change your mind. They’ve converted a jet that’s flown around the world 3,675 times into a pimped out hotel room.
The 366 square metre space of the airliner has been decked out with a master bedroom, two kids’ beds, a large living room, seven bathrooms (for the extra fancy- those who don’t want to use the same bathroom twice), a private cinema, two fully equipped kitchens, a play area for children, and WiFi. Light also isn’t an issue with 116 windows.
This unique stay isn’t available for long as you can only stay in this fly apartment during November 28, 29 or 30.
The best part? KLM and AirBnB are offering a one-night stay FREE to three lucky winners. They’ll even fly you over to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam’s main air traffic hub, where the jet is located. Only catch is you have to be cleverer than the stampede of applicants clambering for a chance to stay there. Just hit “contact host” on KLM’s AirBnB listing for a chance to win.
There are some house rules, but not long enough to fill a whole safety demonstration, the rules are:
- No flying.
- Don’t use the inflatable emergency slide.
- Smoking is not allowed when the non-smoking sign is on.
- No marshmallow roasting with the jet engines.
- Please water our plants and feed our fish.
- The consumption of alcohol is not allowed.
- Please treat our plane like you treat your own plane.
