- The Rich Are Different April 23
The Four Seasons is taking its renowned luxury service to the skies with its own private jet. The retrofitted, all-black Boeing 757 is aimed at the one percent who can't be bothered to fly with the normals on commercial airliners. This is the hotel industry's first fully branded private plane.
The plane's interior will be reminiscent of the company's fancy hotels, and the jet will feature in-flight Wi-Fi, onboard concierges, private chefs, and 52 large leather seats for their passengers' posh butts. Adding to the jet's exclusivity, the special Four Seasons jet will only be available for three different trips Four Seasons has put together.
First, there are two separate 24-day Around the World itineraries that include stops in Bora Bora, Istanbul, and London for $119,000 per person. And if you're on a budget, there's the $69,000 Backstage with the Arts trip, which is two weeks long and includes stops in Paris, Venice, and Prague.
Reservations open today, and the first trip departs in February. Your move, Hampton Inn.- - Jordan Valinsky
