Have you fantasised about the lifestyles of the rich and famous? Those who can afford the $10,000 (or more) luxury suites on board the new A380 airbus? Now, guests curious about on-board luxury can get a taste of that lifestyle for less, as long as they don’t mind staying at the airport. A hotel chain in the Netherlands has retrofitted an entire 120-seat plane into a luxury hotel suite, near Teuge airport. The suite includes a jacuzzi, separate shower, infrared sauna, mini bar, 3 flat screen televisions, blu-ray DVD player with a comprehensive collection of DVDs, and a kitchen. And if you do feel like leaving the ground, you can add on a private flying lesson.
