A selection of disused planes across the world have been converted into restaurants, making for a fun and quirky dining experience.

In-flight meals are definitely one of the most maligned aspects of air travel.
Despite some airlines acquiring world-class chefs to create their menus, few passengers are likely to get revved up about the prospect of eating 30,000 feet above the Atlantic.
Perhaps it’s because our taste buds have a tendency to malfunction at altitude. Some argue that we’re simply bad tempered when flying and thus more likely to complain.
But what if you could make the airplane itself your destination and not just the means of getting there? All while keeping our feet firmly on the ground?

Runway 1, Haryana, India
The father and son duo behind Runway 1 clearly witnessed India’s first airplane restaurant, Hawai Adda, take off and wanted in on the action.
Opened in late 2017, this establishment leans heavily on the whole novelty concept.
Would-be diners are required to collect a boarding pass before heading to their table, while the cockpit houses what the owners claim is India’s only 3D flight simulation game.
However, once you move through to the cabin, the revamped interior of this former Air India Airbus A320 looks decidedly plusher than your standard economy experience.
