The other day, I read a story in the Daily Mail about the planes of the very rich. Some of the interiors of these private planes can be as much as $90 million! Just for the interior design!
It is amazing to see how cool and “luxurious” the premium cabins on commercial aircraft are becoming, but even the famous Etihad Residence cannot hold a candle to what some of these airplanes look like. Nor should it, after all, it only costs between $20,000 – $35,000 to fly the Residence one way! 🙂
A $600 Million Private Airplane
There are some amazing photos in the Daily Mail piece so I highly encourage you to check them out – article here. But, this video is a design that the Greenpoint Technology company has made. This airplane, a 787-8, cost $600 million! It is the most expensive presidential aircraft in the world, having been bought for the president of Mexico.
It is very easy to forget that you are actually looking at rooms inside of an airplane and I am sure that is part of the point – to make the rich owners forget they are not on the ground. The photo at the end of the article is just, well, not sure what to call it! It is the “throne” for the Saudi prince aboard his private A380. I don’t think it feels quite like the seats on my Ryanair flight. 🙂
