5. Donald Trump’s Boeing 757 – ‘Trump Force One’ 

The Boeing 757 is known as the Ferrari of commercial jets, and Donald Trump’s pimped-out version costs $100 million. 

Called Trump Force One, every piece of metal is plated with 24-carat gold, including light fixtures, seat buckles, and the bathroom sink. 

All of the seats are made with Italian leather and have the Trump family crest stitched on them. 

The aircraft also has a custom paint job on the outside, with Trump written in big gold letters and the American flag painted on the tail.

4. Kim Kardashian’s Golfstream G 650 ER – ‘Kim Air’

This aircraft usually costs $66.5 million, but Kardashian’s bespoke version is priced at a whopping $150 million. 

The aircraft is actually customized to match her mansion; it’s all crepe white and beige. 

It’s also got an enhanced ionization feature so its passengers can breathe fresh outside air.

3. Sultan of Brunei’s Boeing 747-430 

From gold wash basins to crystal chandeliers, this Boeing aircraft is unlike any other. 

A standard 747-430 costs about $200 million, but after the Sultan’s makeover, the price skyrocketed to $320 million. 

It has everything from luxurious bedrooms to a private office, dining room, lounge areas and everything is solid gold or gold plated. 

The Sultan is also trained to fly the aircraft himself. 

2. Joseph Lau’s Boeing 747-8 VIP 

The Boeing 747-8 VIP usually costs around $150 million, but after the Chinese billionaire’s customizations, it reportedly cost $367 million. 

His VIP version has a bar, dining room, more than one lounge, and an exclusive sky loft above the main cabin. 

There are also a couple of bedrooms, a massive meeting room, and an onboard gym. 

1. Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal’s Airbus A380 

The Airbus A380 is the world’s largest passenger aircraft, with two full-length decks. 

The Saudi Arabian prince ordered the plane for $500 million and designed it with a throne in the center. 

The plane was reportedly customized with a garage for the prince’s supercars and a stable for his horses and camels.

It also has a Turkish spa on board, a dining room that can sit 10 people, a prayer room, and a huge meeting room. 

But reports suggest the plane was never delivered to the prince, and instead it was sold to an undisclosed buyer.
