KLM & Airbnb Provide A Chance To Live In A Refurbished Airplane
By Loke Shi Ying, 15 Nov 2014
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the flag carrier airline of the Netherlands, has placed one very unique accommodation listing on Airbnb.
It is simply titled, ‘Spacious Airplane Apartment’. What it really is, is a dwelling that KLM has created by refurbishing a plane.
It houses four people with two bedrooms and over eight bathrooms. It comes with Wi-Fi, a toaster, a coffee maker, comfortable first class chairs, a game console and a giant cockpit panorama window. Inflight meals and entertainment? Solid.
For a chance to stay in the Airplane Apartment, one must write in to KLM with a summary of why they would like to come. You could win one night’s stay at this apartment on November 28, 29 or 30.
The airplane is stationary and parked beside the runway of Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, North Holland, Netherlands.
However, like all Airbnb listings, the Airplane Apartment has some house rules. Here’s what they are, as taken from their Airbnb listing page:
• 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.
