Rich guys buy sports cars. Really rich guys buy private jets. Guys that want to live even more extravagantly? They buy entire airliners for personal use.
An Arab oil magnate is spending $300 million on an Airbus A380, with another $100 million earmarked for the interior. What does that kind of scratch buy you? Peep this.
New York-based jet-interior expert Edése Doret who will be designing the A380 for the customer says it will include two dining halls, one 600 foot master bedroom, game room, lounge with giant curtains that will mimic tents of the Arabian desert, and a fiber-optic mosaic that will depict a shifting desert scene. Plas include a whirlpool tub (first in the air) with a rapid drainage system that can empty the standing water in seconds to a tank in the cargo hold and a missile defense system too.
Geez, and I thought those spinning rims were over-the-top.
Amazingly flashy WSJ video on the jet after the hop.
