– [Ju] This is Jumbo Stay. It’s a converted Boeing 747-212B, grounded at Arlanda Airport in Stockholm. We’re staying the night here to see whether a decommissioned plane could possibly make a good hotel. On first glance, it looks like it’s gonna be extremely cold and
not that comfortable, especially in the cockpit
or the engine rooms, but let’s see what it’s like to sleep in. The airplane is parked near to the runway, where you can see planes taxiing. The plane took two years to renovate. Some of the original seats, wiring, bar and controls remain. You can also walk along
the wings of the plane or have drinks out there in the summer. Guests can choose from 33 rooms. We stayed in one of the single rooms and the private cockpit suite upstairs. The cockpit suite has some of the original controls from the 747. The controls, rudder pedal, thrust levers and fuel switches. The CRT displays have been replaced, but you can have a go at
moving everything else. So, do you actually get
a good night’s sleep? Booking the cockpit suite
gives you private access to the VIP lounge. The hotel’s staff serve as cabin crew, decked out in the stewards’ clothing and they’ve had some unusual
guests over the years.
