(PRWEB UK) 30 April 2012
With the summer holidays fast approaching, flight bookings are on the rise. For many Brits, taking a flight is simply a means of getting to the real start of the holiday. But now with the launch of a deluxe suite built into the cockpit of a jumbo jet, sleeping onboard can be a first class holiday in itself.
For only £303 a night, home rental company Wimdu.co.uk is offering the chance to sleep in the cockpit of a Boeing 747 whilst it sits overnight on the runway at Arlanda airport, Sweden.
A plane spotters dream, the aero plane cockpit has been converted into a spectacular suite for one or two people, and features adjustable beds, free wireless internet and a private bathroom and shower. The suite contains a flat screen TV, installed to enhance the original controls and interior, but guests can also enjoy the thrilling views of air traffic at Arlanda airport through the eyes of a pilot.
A truly amazing experience, at the controls of the Queen of the Skies!
