LUXURY IN THE SKIES!
There is a world where beds are covered in creaseless, silk sheets, the food is served on the finest and most expensive porcelains, the smell of refined Burgundy wine of the best quality fills the air, silver-plated flatware is perfectly displayed on the table, the crisp white leather and woodwork of the rarest quality is perfectly polished and each silver service requires a fresh pair of white gloves - that is the world of luxury 40.000 feet above the ground.
Welcome to the luxurious world of VIP Jets!
I feel that of all the luxury toys out there, nothing compares to a VIP Jet; its refined luxury and the comfort it offers both on board and in the ground is a priceless gift to someone who loves traveling. A "gift" that costs millions (to buy) or in the best case, thousands (to rent). For those who are rich, lucky, popular or related to someone who is something of the above, the reality of business jets is on the daily schedule.
On the same exact time when millions of travelers around the world spent countless hours waiting in an airport or in the line to the security check, complaining about their loud co-passengers or the over-priced bottle of water they have to pay or even worse, reaching their destination with a suitcase missing - the exact SAME time, on another world of absolute discretion and luxury, there are people enjoying the advantages or VIP flying from the first Hello!

It is a whole different world, the world of the luxurious lifestyle.
This is the world of private jets - my world as a flight attendant for the past few years. It is the world I've loved, served, respected and above all, deepely understood over the years.
Many times I've been asked: Why would someone spend so much money on a private jet when he/she can simply do so with less? And why would someone choose a vip jet over a commercial plane? My answer is always the same: because he/she is able to financially support such a choice and most importantly, because traveling is part of a certain lifestyle that requires luxury, discretion, comfort and safety.
The most exciting stories take place 40.000 feet up in the air where Frank Sinatra's "The World We Knew" gracefully plays in the background, setting the tone for the unparalled luxury, the elegance of the art de la table and the excellence of the customer service while the view of Rio de Janeiro down beneath seems even more mesmerizing through the perfectly clean windows, the blankets are ready to welcome the passengers and help them relax in the best way and the Chanel perfumes in the bathroom are spraying their luxurious scents in the atmosphere.

Conference rooms, cinema rooms, luxurious bathrooms and well-polished showers, freshly-cut liliums oriental in the main bedroom, kids rooms and playrooms, well-equiped galleys, design living rooms, king-sized beds and gold handles - a few of the exquisite details featured aboard a vip jet.
From the golden throne right in the middle of the cabin of the 500-million dollars Kingdom of the Sky owned by Al Waleed bin Talal, prince of Saudi Arabia - considered to be the most expensive jet in the world - to the 200-million dollars Airbus 340 owned by one of the richest men in Russia, Alisher Usmanov, the Flying Theatre aboard the Gulfstream of the American producer Tyler Perry, the gold sinks and the video room in Donald Trump's Boeing 757, the Jewelry of the Sky - the Boeing Dreamliner of Joseph Lau, the real estate king of Hong Kong and the 30-seat dining room inside Roman Abramovic's, luxury is writting its own history and the sky has no limit!
