Airplanes are durable so it makes sense to repurpose them

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

The Ireland-based duo are recycling airplanes to create home offices, glamping pods, that kind of thing. I mean, think about where planes go. They're pretty durable, so it makes sense to repurpose them. Now, the thing is, they cost at least 20,000 bucks. And for that price, that cabin needs to be made from the first-class part of the plane. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
