Well fret no longer, no need to attempt amorous acrobatics in the confines of the onboard lavatories, because the Hotelicopter, the worldÃ¢â‚¬™s first flying hotel, is here!
According to the advertising: Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Hotelicopter features 18 luxuriouslyappointed rooms for adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable travel experience.Ã¢â‚¬Â WeÃ¢â‚¬™re not quite sure about the adrenaline junkie part, but it does sound unique.
Each soundproofed room is equipped with a queen-sized bed, fine linens, a minibar, coffee machine, wireless internet access, and Ã¢â‚¬Å“all the luxurious appointments youÃ¢â‚¬™d expect from a flying five-star hotel. Room service is available one hour after liftoff and prior to landing.Ã¢â‚¬Â The Hotelicopter is due to fly its maiden journey this June for an undisclosed price.
But based on the fact that the Hotelicopter looks awfully similar to a Sovietmade Mil V-12 helicopter Ã¢â‚¬“ the largest helicopter ever conceived Ã¢â‚¬“ but which only existed as two prototypes, we think this could be…err, a bit suspicious?! Ya think?
