Undoubtedly, flying is the safest, the fastest, (arguably) the most comfortable, and sadly the most expensive way to travel, according to statistics conducted over the years. On the other hand, flying in a private jet is very expensive and is without a doubt the most luxurious way to travel. It's almost impossible for you to own a jet unless you belong to the millionaires or billionaires club.
The wealthiest people on the planet love to spend their money on expensive toys and since planes are very expensive, they happen to be some of the things that they love to collect. Sure, these wealthy people use their jets to get to places faster and more conveniently, but more often than not, these rich guys want to show off and get to their destinations in style.
It's common for the owners of the most luxurious private jets in the world to spend millions, or even hundreds of millions of dollars to make their jets even more luxurious, a cost that does not include the amount that they paid for the plane to begin with. Some private jets are nothing short of five-star hotels that can fly, owing to the amazing amenities that these rich people fit in their planes, not to mention the very expensive customizations that you will definitely not find in ordinary planes.
Here are some of the most luxurious private jets in the world. Get ready to be blown away by what the wealthy have done.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is the man to look up to when it comes to owning a private jet. This billionaire Saudi Arabian businessman bought the Airbus A380 for $300 million and then spent $200 million to customize it into the most luxurious jet on the face of the earth. The Airbus A380 planes were made to transport 800 people, but the Prince used that space to set up a parking space for his Rolls Royce, a concert hall, steam rooms, spa treatment rooms, flat screen TVs on the walls and even the floors, an elevator, and many other luxurious features that you could have never imagined on a plane. The jet even has a golden throne situated as the focal point of the golden lounge, where the prince can sit on while interacting with his friends, family, or guests.
