Inside a Memphis Home is the First Class Delta Airline Experience

People alike are intrigued and confused by a simple family home in Tennessee that has a first-class Delta airport lounge inside.

Questions over the decor in a six-bedroom home on Hickory Forest Drive in Memphis have escalated after snaps of unusual furniture were shared online.

After Zillow Gone Wild posted interior shots of the $589,000 home on its social media pages, people got to see several jokes about lodging and air travel.

House-hunters are greeted by the airline’s two first class seats, positioned in front of a Delta rug, which is surrounded by two food trolleys.

Giant signs inform passengers, or residents, they are in a Sky Priority Zone, while listing the various airline memberships on offer. Whereas other signs simply announce “Welcome to Memphis.”

The home is listed by Brian Lurie of Cry-Like Realtors, who told newsweek: “Homeowners just want everyone to have a first class experience in their home!

“It was quite unique, and my initial thought when I got home was to take it outside and stage the room.

“After thinking about it, I decided I was cool with it and hoped it would bring some character and dialogue, which it definitely is!”

He said he also found an overhead bin from a plane in a closet.

Delta’s first class is referred to as its Sky Priority Service, claiming that the seats are larger than economy, with the airline stating: “8 inches of extra legroom compared to the main cabin seat and up to 5.4-inches of recline Stretch out.”

However, looking at Delta’s website, it is thought that the residential house seats could be an older model.
