Many of our favorite celebrities live a luxurious lifestyle and there is no doubt about it. But their idea of luxury starts where ours ends especially when we talk about the lifestyle enjoyed by two celebrities who are now living together as a couple. And when we talk about celebrity couples, one of the most popular ones is that of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
Both Kim and Kanye have, without a doubt, become an obsession of millennials around the world in a short span of time, somewhat because the pair knows how to exemplify the notion of living a luxury lifestyle which is fun to witness and, in some cases, follow.
When this famous couple was about to embark on a long-haul flight just after Thanksgiving, they decided to forgo the comforts of first class and, instead of traveling in a commercial aircraft, opted for a private jet, that too a Boeing 747SP.
Social media queen Kim was of opinion that flying on a private jet is certainly not a big deal for them. She remarked that if Kanye wants it to choose this option, she does not have any concerns with it.
Honestly speaking, there are very few people around the world who can actually afford to fly privately on a Boeing 747SP, and this couple is among them.
The size of this private jet could easily blow up your mind and luckily, a virtual tour of this jet has been revealed on Instagram, and so we can reveal some of its amazing features.
Flying in a private jet is not all that uncommon for celebrity couples. Many have already experienced it; however, they usually do in a smaller-sized aircraft. The Boeing 747SP is certainly something unique to be flown around as a private plane and a relatively new concept for all of us.
The plane, by design, has a total seating capacity for 233 passengers at least when the same version was being flown by United Airlines. That’s quite spacious for only three adults (the third being their personal trainer).
The couple explored the interior of the plane together. Kim remarked that she had never experienced anything like it before. Their bedroom is comfortably spacious and has one full-size double bed and two seats nice tucked into it.
The look of the bathroom is completely different from the ones available on normal flights. It is a luxury bathroom with a freestanding basin, and the top of the basin has a marble counter while the floor has all-wooden finishing.
There are a few seats on the plane, all set for an entourage who may want to accompany and all of them look quite comfortable as well. Other areas of the jet include spacious living rooms for passengers to just sit and relax.
The chill room, as it has been termed, has a curve-shaped sofa seating with a round table at the center. The jet itself is divided into two floors, and there are plenty of snacks stacked in it for the comfort the travelers in a long flight. Surprisingly, there is also a dining table to enjoy these snacks in addition to comfortable seating.
Finding out about such a spacious and luxurious private jet surely pops one question in everyone’s mind: the cost. According to leasing companies, a Boeing 747SP is usually not available for hire.
There are very few planes in Qatar which are sometimes used for this purpose. For this reason, it is very much possible that this one is privately-owned, most likely by Las Vegas Sands Corp. according to Forbes. The value of private flights, as per chartered companies, is around $50,000 per hour, but as this one did not have a charter license, it’s likely the pair did not have to pay anything for it.
Kim did not reveal anything about the destination of their flight. However, the flight is presumed to have been longer than 10 hours. The couple was seen doing lunges along with their personal trainer down the plane aisle, during which Kim commented about their plan to engage in workouts on the plane after having gotten 10 hours of sleep.
Chances are that this entire arrangement had been sponsored by a friend. Kim mentioned Team Adidas in one of the videos, and as we all know, Kanye’s Yeezy brand is sold through Adidas.
Hence, it is probable that the couple received the jet as a gift from them, which is not that big considering Forbes has reported the estimated value of this Boeing 747SP at below $10 million.
