The world of private jets doesn’t get better than the $61.5 million Gulfstream G550, which is considered by many as the biggest piece of floating luxury available in the market. But, that is not so. There are a select few dirty rich people who are actually converting airlines into private jets. The most famous of these has been shady business tycoon-turned presidential candidate’s Boeing 757 business jet. But now, it seems that Trump’s antics have been overtaken by the original manufacturers themselves.
Boeing and Airbus have realized this limited yet lucrative market potential and are now converting whole airliners into luxury private jets. They are calling them the VIP versions of the planes and by labeling it such, they will be able to make wealthy customers cough up more cash for essentially the same with more luxuries. While in the past, the VIP models were limited to the smaller A320 or 737 models, now Bowing has taken the next step and converted a Boeing 747 into a luxury private jet. It was transformed into this use by Greenpoint Technologies from Kirkland, Washington. Here is what you can expect from its inside since from the outside it is pretty much the same thing:
It has 4,786 square feet of space and can fly non-stop for 11,000 miles! How about that for a private jet?
Now the Boeing has been selected as part of the two Air Force One planes.
The price tag is $367 million. Without all the luxuries of course.
All the cabinets, furniture and woodworks are custom-designed for this plane.
Looks like a floating palace, doesn’t it?
I can’t get enough from this lounge!
Here is another design for the same lounge.
It can be customized in any way the client likes.
This king-sized bed is so inviting me for a sleep. Damn you billionaires.
The plenty of windows give an amazing view of the outside.
You can also have the stateroom in any way you like.
While the $51 million jet we covered before is pure luxury too, the Boeing’s bigger fuselage gives a spacious appearance that is impossible in smaller jets.
Looks like a picture from the world’s top luxury hotels rather than a plane.
A comfy office in between is every person’s dream.
A top-of-the-line conference room.
Can also serve as a dining room too!
What about the first class seating on top of the Boeing 747? It is yet another private lounge!
So, worth the money or not?
