A flying hotel that never lands could see 5,000 guests soaring through the air in luxury

The AI-controlled Sky Cruise would have 20 engines powered by nuclear fusion and would never need to land on Earth, according to an ambitious new design that has just been unveiled

Up to 5,000 guests could one day float luxuriously through the air aboard a nuclear-powered “flying hotel”.

An ambitious design for the AI-controlled Sky Cruise – which has 20 thrusters powered by nuclear fusion and is never meant to land – has been revealed in a new video.

Conventional aircraft would carry passengers to and from the Sky Cruise and even all ongoing repairs would be carried out in-flight, reports the Daily Star.

Hashem Alghaili, who created the incredibly detailed mockup of the monster plane, says nuclear-powered sky-cruising “could be the future of transportation.”

When asked how many people it takes to fly the giant plane, he said: “All this technology and you still want pilots? I think it will be completely autonomous.”

But Sky Cruise will still need a lot of staff.

The promotional video promises restaurants and a huge mall in the sky, as well as gyms, theaters and even a swimming pool.

However, not everyone agrees as some commentators refer to the Sky Cruise concept as the “new Titanic”, pointing out that elevators on the outside of the plane would be anything but aerodynamic and that crashing a plane powered by a nuclear reactor will, this could destroy a city.

One nervous passenger said: “Great idea to put a nuclear reactor in something that could fail and fall out of the sky.”

While another commented “I’m sure I could afford a bottom deck ticket with no leg room and no lounge access”.

Given the huge development costs involved, some predicted it would cost a fortune to travel on Sky Cruise.

A financially savvy YouTube commenter added, “While this is an interesting concept and it can be built with current technology, this thing would be super expensive and no doubt only the wealthy could book this hotel.”

The fusion technology that will power Sky Cruise is still a long way off, but even if a plane like this is built one day, there are some things that will never change.

As one commenter pointed out, “I bet I still end up next to someone else’s screaming three-year-old throughout the trip.”
