The world’s most luxurious private jet, complete with high-tech amenities, a master bedroom, and enough room for 40 people, is truly one-of-a-kind — and it cost an estimated £230 million to produce.
The commercial Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft can usually carry between 240 and 335 passengers — but the purpose of this model is a little bit different.
With the tongue-in-cheek registration plate “2-DEER,” the aircraft has been gutted and fully renovated to include market-leading technological innovations, including remote-controlled blinds and furniture, dimmable lighting, and an extra spacious shower.
The commercial-aircraft-turned-private-jet is the only one of its kind — and costs around £55,800 ($74,000) an hour to hire.
Aviation blogger Sam Chui got to take a personal tour of the jet at the Dubai Air Show earlier this month.
Chui was greeted on the steps of the plane by the jet’s cabin crew, who are handpicked from parent company Hainan Airlines Group (HNA)’s already elite staff members.
Once on board the aircraft, the team asked Chui to take a seat so that they could swap his shoes for a pair of fluffy slippers.
Chui then took a tour of the private jet — dubbed a “flying penthouse” — guided by the onboard crew.
Passengers enter the plane into a “lobby” which leads to a dark wood-panelled corridor.
They then reach the jet’s main lounge.
