Airbus and Boeing now sell "VIP" versions of their airliners to meet the demands of the filthy rich for luxury air travel. And these VIP modifications of airliners take luxury to a new level. Here is a great example of it - a personalized Boeing 747-8. It has 444 square meters (4,786 square feet) of space lounges, a huge dining room, an office and a state room.
The Boeing 747-8 VIP is the longest and second-largest airliner ever built. Powered by a team of four General Electric GEnx engines, the plane can fly 8,000 nautical miles nonstop.
The Boeing has been selected to be the president's new plane and will one day assume the call sign Air Force One.
The asking price for the jumbo jet is $367 million — and that's before the all the luxurious goodies are installed.
As you may have guessed, all of the interior components and cabinets are custom designed and built in-house using only the finest materials.
I mean, just look at this lounge! It's spectacular.
Here's the lounge from another angle.
And if you'd like the lounge in another design, no problem!
The 747-8 can be customized any way the client likes.
Want to take a nap? Check out the regal stateroom.
Or you can look out the window as you soar above the world.
Naturally, the stateroom comes with its own lounge
As with any other part of the plane, you can have it any way you like.
This is certainly a far cry from the lesser private jets of the world and …
... even makes the world's luxury hotels somewhat obsolete.
For those looking to do some business, there's a massive office for that and …
... an impressive conference room for larger meetings that ...
... can double as a stately dining room, when necessary.
And what about the big hump on top of the 747-8? There's a lounge up there too!
