I thought it might be interesting to ask the a.net world this question... Of course the obvious are like Abramovich, Travolta, Trump, Oprah, etc., but who else do you know of?? If this has been covered before, I apologize...

Thanks

There is like some rich Middle Eastern guy ( I think from UAE) who bought a 763 and did it up. It was on Discovery wings on the Sky TV. Sombody Mussad, I think that was his name


First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

According to this article.....

£56 Million, plus whatever the cost of the fit out. Chump change to a man like Abramovich - the 3 yachts he owns come in at a collective £200 million and lets not even start on what he has been spending on his football team  crazy
