This Boeing 747 is now a party plane

How good is getting lit on planes?

Whenever you’re heading somewhere new and exciting, it’s hard not to get carried away with a few drinks when you’re 30,000 feet in the air. Before long you’re best mates with the people next to you, and soon enough you’re hearing things like “Sir, can you please be quiet,” and “Sir, please get out of the cockpit, you’re not allowed in here.” Wait, what?

The plane is a genuine Boeing 747 that flew for British Airways for many years.

 

You won’t have any of those issues on the British Airways Boeing Negus 747, which, earmarked for retirement, has been made into a specially designated ‘party plane’. For AU$1900 an hour, you’ll be able to rent out what might be the ultimate space for an event or party.

Almost AU$500,000 has been poured into the plane in order to make it party-ready, which includes an epic dancefloor, lighting, a DJ booth, a kitchen and a bar.

The space can hold up to 220 people.

 

We do hope you don’t have anywhere to go though – the plane is permanently grounded at Cotswold’s Airport in England. While you won’t have to deal with jet lag in the days following, you will likely have a different kind of headache to contend with.

Some of the original interior has been preserved.
