|The Jumbo Jet Hostel|
When a jumbo jet dies, it’s usually sold for scrap or something. But Swedish entrepreneur Oscar Dios has a better idea for the 30-year-old junker he bought. He turned it into a hotel. Boeing 747, dubbed Jumbo Hostel, is parked outside Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport.
Since it was taking up a lot of space, something had to be done about it, so Dios’ idea was accepted immediately. The Jumbo Hostel can accomodate 74 people, at the moment, in 25 simple, 70’s style rooms. The jet’s upper deck has been transformed into a conference hall, while the cockpit has been converted into a wedding chappel.
