Hyatt Airport Hotel Has Boeing 787 Simulator You Can Use For $173

There’s a hotel at Tokyo Haneda airport with a Boeing 737 flight simulator in one of its rooms. You can rent time in the simulator for $277. Or you can spend the night in the room – but you aren’t allowed to play with the simulator while you’re a guest.

Spending less than $300 for simulator time with an instructor is a great deal – a reason that some people may force an overnight for themselves at Haneda airport even. For an aviation geek there’s nothing like flight simulator time.

But what if I told you there’s an airport hotel where you can spend points to stay the night, that has a Boeing 787 simulator and where sim time is even cheaper?

The Grand Hyatt Incheon, which has a complimentary shuttle from the Seoul airport, often has room rates as low as $122 a night. It’s a category 4 hotel, so 12,000 Hyatt points per night (or 12,000 points transferred to Hyatt from Chase) and eligible for category 1-4 free nights that come each year with the co-brand credit card and that are earned for a variety of activities with Hyatt.

And the Grand Hyatt Incheon has a Boeing 787 simulator you can rent time in for $173 an hour:

Many airlines of course offer deals on flight simulator experiences but those are usually much more expensive especially in the U.S.

Who’s planning a trip to Seoul Incheon? It’s now Delta’s Asia hub, home to Korean Air, and also home to Star Alliance member Asiana.

  1. OMG… I will be there in Jan and again in June… crazy. Looks like they will have it for at least through new years day. I work at Boeing providing IT support for 787 since 2007 and watched the first flight and dreaming about someday I can sit in a simulator. Closest I ever gotten was to sit in a real cockpit on one of ANA ones in the production line during early days. Granted it’s not a full featured simulator but this would do…

  2. That looks rather disappointing. That’s not even close to a level D full motion SIM which doesn’t surprise me as those usually go for $900 per hour or more with instruction.
