The famous winged TWA terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport came out of its decades-long retirement on Wednesday with a new life as a luxury hotel.
The airport comes complete with 60s air travel style, an infinity pool that looks out on the JFK runways and a cocktail lounge made out of a 1958 Lockheed Constellation plane that used to run drugs in the 70s.

The on-airport hotel opened with 512 sound-proofed guestrooms - which were all sold out on opening night - six restaurants and eight bars including a museum paying homage to the Jet Age, the flight centre the hotel is built in and the modern design movement.
A stay at this iconic hotel starts at about $249 (about R3 536 at R14,20/$) per night, but you'll also be able to buy $25 (about R355) gym passes and book short-term stays on layovers, starting at $139 (about R 1 973) for four hours.
