If you have ever taken a long haul, red-eye flight in coach class, the notion of voluntarily spending the night on an airplane may strike you as bonkers. But a promotional project cook-up by KLM and Airbnb may change your mind.
Called “Airplane Apartment”, this retired KLM McDonnell Douglas MD-11 has been transformed into a retro-outfitted two bedroom apartment, with two kitchens, a lounge, panoramic cockpit views and eight bathrooms. The “apartment”, which is parked at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, comes fully equipped and offers free wifi. The only catch is that the unit can only be accessed through a contest at Airbnb. You can take your chances here.
