Take A Look At This Plane That Has Been Converted Into A Restaurant

New images have emerged showing how a retired Boeing 737 was converted into a fine-dining restaurant by its Chinese owners.

The airplane restaurant, named 'Lily Airways', was established by a Chinese tycoon and opened to the public today in Wuhan, central China's Hubei province today.

The restaurant is styled as a 'Western fine-dining space', with Li spending 'big money' hiring chefs from abroad to man the kitchen.

It cost owner Li Yang 35 million yuan (£3.9 million) to buy and to re-fit the retired jet. The aircraft, which is 28 years old, had to be split into several parts to be transported by sea from Indonesia to China after Li purchased it last year.

The average price of dining there is around 200 (£22.50) to 300 yuan (£33.74).

According to Li, the restaurant can accommodate 70 guests at a time, slightly less than the 128 passengers a Boeing 737 plane can usually carry.

Due to the airline theme waiting staff were employed in line with airline standards, meaning males need to be taller than 5ft 7in and females need to be taller than 5ft 4in, as well as having to wear airline attire.
