The Dutch airline KLM is offering visitors to Amsterdam the chance to spend the night on board a converted plane.
The unique accommodation is being offered for just three nights on the website Airbnb.

It sleeps four guests in two bedrooms, while guests can access the cockpit, where they can enjoy panoramic views of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

There’s no shortage of places to spend a penny, of course – with “eight small bathrooms”, according to the listing.
Other features include a library (copies of KLM’s in-flight magazine are certain to feature), Wi-Fi, a coffee-making facilities, a games console and a home cinema system (Snakes on a Plane, The Aviator, Top Gun or Disney’s Planes are among the films on offer).

“House rules” include “no flying”, “don’t use the inflatable emergency slide”, and “no marshmallow roasting with the jet engines”.
The stay cannot be bought. Anyone interested must fill out a form explaining – in no more than 100 words – why they would like to go."

My friend showed me this thread. Well, it's unusual. But I can't say that it's unique. When I was a kid, there was a whole airplane café in my city. It was a real airplane since 1960-s rebuilt for visitors. So I don't see anything unusual in using it as a hotel or something. But, TBH, if it was me, I wouldn't live in a place like that. I prefer more luxury stuff.

What's wrong about planes? I just love it. I was traveling not so long ago and saw the similar café and I really liked it. Maybe it's because I love planes. When I was a kid, I had a lot of model airplanes in my bedroom. Not so long ago I made one of my dreams come true - I've found private jet rentals and rented a whole plane. I needed to get to Jamaica. And I thought - what the hell? I deserve the best stuff. That's why I rented it. It costed me a hell lot of money, but I don't regret. Because it was perfect.
