A recent Airbnb post lists accommodations that can accommodate up to four people via two bedrooms and three beds. We might as well mention that the apartment is a real freaking airplane.
Adweek’s David Kiefaber reports that KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is partnering with Airbnb to offer an apartment on an airplane.
See you on the list at Airbnb’s website if that sounds like something that might still linger on your to-do list.
The website explains: “Spend a night in a real KLM aircraft on 28/29/30 November! To participate in this competition, click on ‘CONTACT HOST’ (NOT ‘request to book’), choose any date and tell us why and with whom you would like to come (in English – max 100 words).
Buzz60 explains a little further:
Now hurry, because you have until November 20 to explain why you absolutely have to stay on a plane. If you win, you and a few lucky friends or family will be whisked off to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport where the plane is parked.
The description explains a bit more about what you get with your free stay: “Inside the bright 366 (square meter) plane with 116 windows, you’ll find a large living room, master bedroom, two children’s beds, two kitchens and eight small bathrooms.It is equipped with Wi-Fi, a toaster, a coffee maker, comfortable first-class armchairs, a game console and a window giant panoramic in the cockpit.
Although it seems obvious to many, Airbnb offered a few humorous disclaimers in its competition. Sadly, there’s no flying allowed on this apartment-turned-plane and absolutely no “marshmallow toasting with the jet engines,” so don’t ask.
Also, drinking alcohol on the plane is prohibited, so wait until you disembark to strap one on.
Previously, we told you the story of a hostel in Stockholm built from a retired airplane. However, in this case, you will have to share with visitors who could occupy 27 rooms.
As for the retired KLM aircraft, you get it all to yourself. Please just leave the marshmallows and whiskey at home.
