This 747 private jet is a palace in the sky

We’re normally happy with a free pillow and some peanuts…

FOR MOST PEOPLE, private jets such as the $65 million Gulfstream G650 or the Bombardier Global Series are the epitome of luxury air travel, but there are a select few who can afford more than that.

They’re converting airliners into private flying palaces. To meet this demand, Airbus and Boeing have begun selling “VIP” versions of their airliners under the Airbus Corporate Jet and Boeing Business Jet brands. While most of these planes are based on smaller Airbus A320 series or Boeing 737 models, one recent VIP conversion took luxury to a new level.

One very lucky, very wealthy, and very confidential client took delivery of a personalized Boeing 747-8, completed by Greenpoint Technologies of Kirkland, Washington. Its incredible 4,786 sq ft of space features a stateroom, lounges, an office, and a massive dining room. It is the longest and second largest airliner ever built and can fly 80,000 nautical miles nonstop.

 So, let’s step inside and have a look…

As you may have guessed, all of the interior components and cabinets are custom designed and built in-house using only the finest materials

That can double as a stately dining room, however, if needed
