New hotel amenity: 737 flight simulator

 

A hotel connected to Tokyo's Haneda International Airport is offering what is genuinely (at least so far) a unique amenity: a full-size 737-800 flight simulator built into one of its rooms.

At the Haneda Excel Hotel, the "Superior Cockpit Room" comes with two beds, bath, WiFi and the simulator, which is just like the ones used in pilot training except that it doesn't physically move to simulate aircraft motion.

Just renting the room ($232 to $281 per night) only lets you have the simulator as decoration; for a 90-minute session on the simulator, with an instructor, you'll have to pay $299, which allows you to 'fly' the plane to Osaka. The good news is you don't have to stay overnight to sign up for the Osaka flight; the bad news is you can't buy a return flight from Osaka.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
