Saudi Prince’s $485 Million Flying Palace


Steam room? Check. Concert hall? Check. Garage for Rolls? Check. What splendour befitting an Arabian Prince who no longer rides the camel but flies in style for both business & pleasure . . . like waving his magic wand for dreams of fantasy! 

Imagine the perfect flying experience – no queues, a reclining seat, add four-poster beds, a Turkish bath for four and somewhere to put the Rolls-Royce – not to mention a boardroom with holographic screens and a concert hall.

A superjumbo designed to order for a Middle Eastern Prince … 

When completed, the converted Airbus A380 will be the world’s largest private jet.


Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud spent $485 million on the custom Airbus A380,

with interior and amenities designed by British firm Design.

The plane usually seats 600, but lots of room had to be cleared for various perks . . .

. . . qualitatively & quantitatively there’s such lavishness, opulence, extravagant extreme & excesses just to flaunt his paramount riches!

Naturally, there’s an on-board garage, so that the prince can be driven right to the threshold of the airplane’s elevator.

After arrival, he can retire to his master suite – one of five with king-size beds, and computer generated prayer mats which always face Mecca ,

up to 20 extra-guests have to make due in sleepers that are the equivalent of first class.

Not to forget there’s also a Concert Hall that seats ten and has a baby grand piano, a boardroom with a holographic projector, and a full-size steam room.


But the most entertaining perk is a “Wellbeing Room” which has a floor upon which is projected an enormous image of

what the plane is flying over – thus creating a “magic carpet” effect.
