Are you over the age of 12, with a big, fat wallet? Then by all means, do go ahead and read.
Are you ready to embark on a luxurious, 24-day journey around the world, flying with the prestigious Four Seasons plane for 119,000 dollars per person? Well, we definitely are – as long as we are not the ones paying the bill.
The private jet experience features visiting eight countries (the latest August journey began in Seattle, followed by Tokyo in Japan, Beijing in China, the Maldives, Serengeti in Tanzania, Istanbul in Turkey, St. Petersburg in Russia, Marrakech in Morocco, with the voyage concluding in New York) and staying in luxurious Four Seasons Hotels. The tempting aircraft in question is Boeing 757 with 52 (instead of 233 standard-sized) fully flat VIP seats in a 2-2 configuration. The interior design was inspired by the color and texture of champagne and caviar – the notorious delights of the rich elite.
The above-mentioned hefty amount buys you a seat on the plane, food, accommodation in all the cities you travel to (the Four Seasons Hotels or hotels of similar prestige), beverages (mini bars in hotels excluded), visas, insurance, and itineraries.
Travelling at 35,000 feet, the restaurant in the sky promises to spoil its guests flying guests with multiple entrees, main courses and delicious desserts – all prepared by chefs of exquisite pedigree! During the up to 8-hour-flights, guests are invited to amuse themselves with tablets, TV and free Wi-Fi at any given time.
By the way, children under the age of 12 are not 'desired' on the flight. So not fair – we just wanted to book a flight for our local kindergarten.
