Cruise liners are the hottest holiday vehicles till now. With improving technology and growing demands it is time for some more lavish hospitality. How about a flying hotel?
In March 2009, Hotelicopter, pranked the web users with the Hotelicopter video (see below). It latter turned out that it was a promotion stunt for the Hotel Aggregation and booking site with the same name. People were just impressed with a four storied 5-star hotel gliding over cities or shuttling between two cities. Would it ever be a reality?
This is not the only plan in the pipeline for realizing the concept of a flying hotel. There are some other awesome ideas being put to reality worldwide. Some of these designs and hoaxes if they come to fruition could change the world of tourism and hospitality drastically.
The other thing in the same segment that could interest you is probably none other than “Manned Cloud”. Designer Jean-Marie Massaud’s team has been working in conjunction with the French National Office of Airship Research on the project since 2005. Expected date of first check in – 2020; sorry to disappoint you.
