Stay in a decommissioned Etihad plane in the UK

A former Etihad jet that once flew over 500 passengers around the world now offers an on-ground getaway destination in the UK. 

The Airbus A319 is a decommissioned Etihad jet, and cost about Dhs200,000 to furbish as a hotel. 

The owner, Toby Rhys Davies, 47, runs the Apple Campsite in South Wales and it costs Dhs800 per night to stay in. 

It can accomodate four guests, where it supplies a warm water shower, bathroom, kitchen, and barbecue facilities outside. 

 Toby said,

When I discovered a reclamation yard in Wales had an Airbus A319, we went down and straight away I told them I'd take it.

The jet was so big that it had to be divided into two sections in order to transport the plane from the reclamation yard to the campsite, taking small components and using it for the barbecue decking area.
