Grounded 747? No, it’s a Hostel.

Thanks to an entrepreneurial Swede, it may soon be possible to spend an evening in a Boeing 747 that’s been grounded at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport since 2002. Oscar Diös, the businessman with the rather unconventional proposal, hopes to eventually open a chain of similar hostels at airports around the world.
Wonder if it was the average height of Scandinavians that led Mr. Diös to choose an 80-bed plan instead of repurposing the overhead compartments into some sort of bunk arrangement styled after Japanese capsule hotels?
