    747 Palace in the sky

    Boeing 747 Private jet, very impressive. What next! Airbus A380 Anyone?

    It looks a lot more comfortable than the Lufthansa B747-8 I flew in last week.

      You are obviously not up to date with the Prince's plane (now sold)!

            Due to my confidentiality obligations, I cannot divulge that information of course (!).

            I can inform you that the plane was ordered in 2007 by Prince Bin Talal but delivery was never accepted by him. A subsequent world wide financial crisis caused the Prince to decide to sell the plane. It is rumoured, and denied that it has been bought by the Saudi Ministry of Finance. It is also rumoured to be still parked at Toulouse.

              Unbelievable. Seems all because Airbus rejected the swimming pool idea. In an Aeroplane?

                    Aw shucks why not a swimming pool in the sky?

                    It saves dropping into the ocean by mistake or deliberately.
