Here's a Pretty Fly Apartment on Airbnb: a Refurbished KLM Airplane


KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, which warmed heart-cockles recently with its lost-and-found beagle, delivers another winner by listing a "Spacious Airplane Apartment" on Airbnb.

Yes, they turned an airplane parked at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam into an apartment with two bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, Wi-Fi and a panoramic view from the cockpit. Pretty sweet, right? It's the closest any of us can come to being Elvis without abusing Percodan. (It's also a step up from Airbnb's Ikea listing.)

"On November 28, 29 or 30, you have the chance to spend the night inside this fly apartment. Tell us before November 20 why you would like to spend the night. We'll fly in the winners from anywhere in the world," the listing says.

Unfortunately, KLM stomped on this raging fire of awesome with some seriously bogus house rules, including "no marshmallow roasting with the jet engines" (lame), "the consumption of alcohol is not allowed" (lamer), "no flying" (OK, that one makes sense) and worst of all, "don't use the inflatable emergency slide."

Whatever, KLM. If I didn't want to use an inflatable emergency slide, I would stay in a building like a normal person.
