You've got to admire their dedication to a theme.
Some hoteliers simply name their establishments after something that has no absolutely no connection to their hotel whatsover. Like a "Paris Hotel" in the Brisbane CBD, or an "Outback Hotel" in the heart of London.
Airways Hotel in Port Moresby can't be accused of the same sloppy work.
They've taken a theme and run with it.
Not only does the hotel overlook Port Moresby's Jacksons International Airport (Get it? Airways Hotel. Airport. Subtle.), but they've also plonked an old plane right in the middle of the hotel's grounds.
It's an old Air Niugini DC3 plane that has its wheels down as though it's about to land on the airport's runway just a few hundred metres away.

But this plane is never going to land. It's reached its final destination and is now, believe it or not, part of the hotel's business facilities.
There's a walkway from the hotel to the plane, now refurbished in timber and operating as an internet cafe.

Pushing the theme just a little further is a range of aircraft-theme embellishments, furniture and artwork around the hotel.
