Going “coach” is now nothing to be ashamed of in this converted Queen of the Skies
The world’s first Coach Airways, a unique retail concept store and café housed in a transformed 1981 Boeing 747-230B aircraft, has been unveiled.
The ambitious project, which began in April 2021, saw the successful acquisition, transference, assembling, and completion of the Boeing 747 in May 2023.
With a length of 231 feet 10 inches and a wingspan of 195 feet 8 inches, the Boeing 747 was once hailed as the largest civilian aircraft in the world during the late 1960s.
Today, it takes on a new role as the world’s first-ever Coach outlet in a Boeing 747 aircraft.
Aviation enthusiasts and shoppers alike can prepare to be captivated by The Queen of the Skies, as the Boeing 747 was affectionately known.
Now reigning as the Queen of Retail, it offers an extraordinary fusion of aviation history and shopping.
The spacious layout of the plane allows for a comfortable and memorable shopping environment reminiscent of the golden age of air travel when luxury and elegance were emphasised.
An entry pass resembling an air ticket will be given to customers upon entering the store to emulate an air travel experience right from the entrance via an air bridge.
Customers will be able to explore the interior of the plane and its retail cabins to browse a curated selection of all-gender ready-to-wear bags and travel accessories inspired by the next generation’s expressive approach to fashion.
