Have you heard the expression, "They don't print enough money to make me ___________ " (fill in the blank). That sort of sums up my feelings about boarding a helicopter.
Now comes news of an abandoned Boeing 747 jumbo jet that has been transformed into a 25-room hotel in the Stockholm-Arlanda airport ........presenting the Hotelicopter – the world’s first flying hotel made from a huge Soviet-made Mil V-12 helicopter!
Designed with the sophisticated, affluent traveler in mind, the Hotelicopter has 18 lavish rooms for people on the hunt for a truly unique inimitable travel experience. Each soundproofed room comes with a queen-sized bed, fine linens, a mini-bar, coffee machine, wireless internet access, flatscreen TVs and a range of amenities you’d look for in a flying five star hotel. Other lavish features include private entertainment systems, showers, spa treatments, Jacuzzi, yoga classes, arcade gaming, a tea garden, Babysitting & Kids’ Kamp, blackjack/ping- pong table and playground for kids.
The flying hotel will take its first flight this summer. The Hotelicopter will be also be available for rent for special events and occasions. Pardon me boys, I put my dollar-two-ninety-eight on the budget-conscious, mainstream people-movers. 'Twood be fun to see up-close and personal, tho, wouldn't it?!
