The Most Expensive Private Jet In The World – Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s Airbus A380

What if we told you that there was a fabulous private jet somewhere here on this Earth that contains an acoustically-correct concert hall, a stable to hold horses and camels, a two-Rolls Royce garage, a private steam room and spa, and flat screen televisions in the floor? You’d think we were exaggerating, wouldn’t you? Actually, we’re not. You may wish to return your seat to its upright position and fasten your safety belt before reading about the Airbus A380, which is now the largest and most expensive private jet aircraft in the world.

Airbus A380 Private Jet

According to a March 12, 2014 article in Wonderful Engineering online magazine, a 59-year-old Saudi prince recently acquired the world’s most outrageously expensive private jet. The lucky prince’s name is Al-Waleed bin Talal and he shelled out a reported $300 million for an 800-passenger Airbus A380 that is currently undergoing an additional $200 million or more in custom upgrades.

For the handsome son of Prince Talal and Mona Al Solh, coming up with half a billion bucks to buy his own private Airbus was an effortless task. After all, His Majesty owns the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, the Savoy in London, the Four Seasons and the Plaza hotel in New York City. He also has holdings in Citibank, Twitter and News Corp. Prince Al-Waleed is accustomed to living the very good life and his 21st century version of a magical flying carpet from One Thousand and One Arabian Nights is clear evidence of that fortunate fact.
