Taking a commercial air flight can be such a hassle. You have to get to the airport several hours in advance, wait at a busy terminal, risk losing your luggage (which happens at the most inopportune time), go through all the requisite immigration and custom checks, and then sit through the flight in an uncomfortable chair beside an annoying passenger who would not stop talking. There is also the additional risk of missing the flight, or flight delays and even cancellations. For some rich people, these are more than enough reasons to buy their very own aircraft. And you cannot blame them. If you have the money to spare, owning a plane is a very good investment.
But which plane should you choose? Here is a list of the top ten most expensive private jets in the world.
1. Airbus A380 – more than $300 million
This plane has a wide body, two decks and four engines. The upper deck stretches along the entire length of the fuselage, and its width is equivalent to that of a wide body aircraft. The cabin has 478 square meters of floor space. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a billionaire from Saudi Arabia, is the owner of this kind of jet.
