Where do PILOTS+FLIGHT ATTENDANTS sleep on PLANES?Explained by CAPTAIN JOE
I want to go there: an airplane where you can spend the night in the cockpit
A former plane that now accepts tired travelers for the night. Or just curious.
If you say that you can spend the night on a plane at Stockholm's Arlanda Airport, it hardly sounds attractive. But the point is, this plane is a hostel. And not just a hostel, but an incredibly atmospheric and comfortable place.
There are 33 rooms, some of which can even accommodate four people. Amenities such as showers and toilets are located in the hallway. Some rooms have their own toilets and showers.
But the most interesting thing is the room in the cockpit. A breathtaking panoramic view of the airport opens from here.
If we talk about rooms, they can accommodate from one to four people. Windows overlook the runway. The rooms are equipped in different ways: for example, four-bed rooms are reminiscent of the arrangement of a compartment on a train, but this does not make living here less comfortable. Each room has a TV. Thanks to him, you can track the flight schedule. All guests have Wi-Fi access.
There is also a cafe and bar on the plane.
You ask, how did it happen that the plane became a hostel? We answer: he just flew off his own. The aircraft Boeing 747-212B made its last flight in 2002, then it was put up for sale.
It would seem , who may need an aircraft made in 1976, which already cannot really fly. But the buyer was found, and now travelers have a unique opportunity to live a day or two within the walls of a real plane and watch the life of the airport.
