Sleeping in a Plane, a New Twist

Sleeping on a plane usually comes with negative connotation as it can be quite uncomfortable for prolonged period of time, even in first class.  Swedish entrepreneur Oscar Dios is trying to change the negative image of sleeping on a plane. He converted an old (1976) Boeing 747-200 jet into Jumbo Hostel at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.  It boasts 25 rooms, 85 beds, a cafe, an observational deck and the most coveted room – cockpit suite (2 beds in the cockpit).  For more photos, check out this link.  Jumbo Hostel is also featured in a video on CNN Business Traveller.  I guess this means that you can sleep a bit longer before making the 10 min trek to the ticket counter!
