Forget flying first class. Four Seasons is taking luxury hospitality and service to the skies with its private jet service.
Of course, only the ultra-wealthy can afford to fly aboard the 52-seat custom-designed Four Seasons jet, a reconfigured Boeing 757. The service is now booking trips for 2016. The cheapest trip, a 19-day tour of Europe, Africa and the Middle East, runs $106,000 per person.
“In our hotels, spaces are conceived as settings for great experiences,” Dana Kalczak, Four Seasons’ vice president of design, said in a statement. “The same is true for the Four Seasons Private Jet. Along with the core objectives of comfort and functionality – and adherence to strict aircraft safety standards – we wanted to create an exceptionally luxurious ambiance, and Champagne and caviar became our inspiration.”
The Four Seasons jet features flatbed seats made in handcrafted leather, handwoven woolen carpets, fancy tableware, Dom Perignon, Mongolian cashmere blankets, and a 10-person in-flight crew, including a concierge and executive chef, to pamper its luxury travelers.
“Our aim is to recreate the hotel experience on the Four Seasons Private Jet, which means creating innovative meals using fresh ingredients, served on the finest tableware and linens, all with impeccable Four Seasons service,” said Four Seasons jet chef Kerry Sear.
The Four Seasons jet journeys include air travel, ground transportation, planned excursions and meals.
Wow. Sure beats the pretzels and lack of legroom on most other flights, though the price tag is unbelievable.
