The maintenance, repair and overhaul branch of German Airline company Lufthansa has probably the most ridiculous news you’ll read all day. Its Explorer concept transforms an Airbus A330 into a private jet on the model of a superyacht, with a balcony, a nightclub and a glass floor. Oh, and it costs over a quarter of a billion dollars.

Wealthy travelers avoid commercial trips to avoid queues and avoid getting sick. The demand for private jets is so hot that buyers have eaten the second-hand youth market. It’s no surprise that companies peddle private NS Notions at the first commercial air show since the start of the pandemic.

Dubai Air Show is called the most exciting air show in the world, but I’m pretty sure the honor belongs to EAA Air Venture. Anyway, while the presented Lufthansa Technik Explorer is simply virtual, the company targets real customers with, reports International aviation news.

These customers apparently love multifunctional exploration yachts. Technik believes these people will also want a flying yacht in their fleet.

An important feature is a terrace on the plane suspended 13 feet from the ground.

I never thought I would one day write “sun deck” and “aircraft” in the same sentence.

The idea of ​​Lufthansa Technik is that you park your huge private widebody jet in a scenic location and use it as a hotel and base camp for ‘discoveries and excursions’. It’s a good idea until you remember it’s a big plane, so your scenic views will largely be an airport.

And your eyes don’t fool you, it’s just the door of a cargo plane. Lufthansa Technik says the door is from an A330 freighter and is available as a retrofit for a passenger A330. So if you are a supervillain determined to take over the world, you can think about your plans while watching people steal ads from under your cargo door.

Other highlights of the concept include a lower deck where you’re supposed to showcase some cars.

Who connects to a lounge designed in part by German automobile tuner Brabus. Cars can be seen on the main deck through a glass floor just behind a lounge with screens all over the ceiling that can simulate environments ranging from an aquarium to a nightclub.

I can stand behind this.

It is not known how many, apart from the screens and the cargo door, it will be possible to board customers’ planes.

The concept is so comedic that I feel like it can only be the ride of an outrageously evil movie character. And it requires roughly the same amount of money as a movie villain. Lufthansa Technik says the 12-passenger version seen here would cost $ 100 million on top of the initial cost of the plane, which already costs a quarter of a billion dollars. you could buy a bunch of hotels for that price, but I guess none of them steal.
