We’ve seen some pretty extravagantly expensive stuff in our time, but this jet takes the absolute piss.
Sheikhs, footballers, movie stars, mind-blowingly successful business people, if you’ve got £34 million quid in your back pocket then this is a pretty decent suggestion to spunk your money away on.
The Embraers Lineage 1000E has just been unveiled at the largest jet show in Europe and it didn’t disappoint. It’s certainly for those who want to travel in style and the buyer can tailor the plane whether they want to work, dine, relax or sleep – nice to see your hard-earned millions (or not so hard-earned if you’re a sex scandalised sheikh) can demand a *touch* of flexibility.
This beast of a plane is over 84ft long, and has five cabin zones which can allow up to 19 passengers. In a swathe of luxuries the plane’s highlights include, a wine chiller, espresso machine, ovens, iPod docks, high speed internet and high-def media system. The optional master suite also features a walk-in shower and a massive bed.
Your days of travelling light would be okay, as the Lineage 1000E has the largest in-flight accessible baggage compartment in business aviation – standard. If you’re in fact a businessman – which, you almost certainly will be – you’ll love the dedicated working area, optional printer and fax machine (for people using the jet to travel back in time, presumably) and cordless handsets to make the big decisions whilst you’re flying at 41,000ft.
I’ll get there, one day. As soon as I’ve paid off my student load and credit card debt, I’ll be faxing people in the 80s while taking a shower in the sky.
