|8 Most Expensive Planes In The World: How Much Does It Cost To Fly Like The Elit by Lammyz(m): 7:53am On Nov 10, 2017|
In an increasingly globalized economy it’s important for the elitist of the elite to get around in a safe, reliable, and fast manner. Clearly the only option for fast travel these days is by airplane, but the world’s billionaires aren’t exactly flying economy class with the rest of us. Scroll down to see how 21st century millionaires travel, and to learn more about theworld’s most expensive airplanes.
1. Gulfstream IV –$38 million
It’s no Boeing, but Tom Cruise’s tiny Gulfstream IV has made quitea name for itself. Coming in at $38million, this plane isn’t known for its luxury and space, but it does have room for 19 passengers and is powered by two Rolls-Royce Tay 611-8 engines.This plane is hygienic as well – every two minutes the air in the plane is refreshed so as to avoid the airborne illnesses that us mere mortals are privy to on commercial airlines.
2. BD-700 Global Express –$47.7 million
This jet is the preferred ride of the Hollywood elite. The BD-700 Global Express sits in the hangarsof such celebrities as Oprah and Celine Dion. It’s a perfect little jet for quick business trips– complete with seats for around 18people, workstations, and a community area. At a cool $47.7 million, this is a great little jetsetting plane that is great for getting the job done, but it’s not an obnoxious gas guzzler
3. Trump’s Boeing 757 –$100 million
What do you do when you don’t need your multi-million dollar private jet anymore? You sell it, of course! Not just anyone can buy the hand-me-down jets of the elite, however. Donald Trumps famous jet, with his name splashed across the side, was formerly owned by Microsoft’s Paul Allen.Trump’s jet is worth an estimated$100 million. The details of the jet are incredible, with everything from gold plated seat buckles anda 52 inch flatscreen television. Even the bathroom sinks and faucets are gold! The jet has roomfor 23 passengers and has two bedrooms, it’s definitely a comfortable ride for anyone aboard!
4. Boeing 747 –$153 million
One of the most famous commercial jets in the world is theBoeing 747, but did you know that some of the world’s wealthiest use this jet for private purposes? Such fictional characters as Austin Powers travel in a 747, but real life moguls as well. Multi Billionaire Chinese real estate investor Joseph Lau owns a $153 million Boeing 747.
One of the most distinctive thingsabout the Boeing 747 is that it is multi-story. If you’ve ever been in an international terminal, you’ve probably seen one sitting at the gate: the business class is at the top and the commoners sit in the first level. Now, imagine how creative you could get with all of that space on a private plane! What Lau has done with his skyloft can only be left to the imagination, but it’s surely luxurious!
