Alright I give up. You busted me. Its mine.

You guys have to see it. I have a pool table, a bar with draught beer, a hot tub, a full antique Wurltizer, the biggest damn bed you've ever seen, and chicks. I got a dartboard, plasma screens in every room, Pizza oven, A380 simulator, dry ski slope, golf course, and chicks. Hot chicks man.

Lots of chicks.  Wink



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

It's like mom always said, if you try hard enough you can achieve your dream of flying a super pimped-out A380.

As for the VIP A380? Could it be for Roman Abramovich?

Although four of the most likely suspects have fairly new VVIP 744s, I wouldn't put it past them ordering the "Flying Palace" just to have the ultimate bragging right.

This question pops in my mind, where could you go with a private A380, ? I mean the handling can only be done at a limited number of airports ( 30-40?).

anyhow, I hope it's Saad Co. , then it will have one very nice paint

Saudi Royal Flight are a good bet as is Kingdom Holdings

Bahrain has newly delivered B747-400, Oman has same

Dubai would take one of EK's

Abu Dhabi could take one of EY's deferred order

Oman has a B747-400

Kuwait maybe ?

I seriously doubt it is the Saudi Royal Fleet. They've only recently pinched a 744 from SV to convert into VIP configuration. It will become the new HM1 .

I may have blinked during the Airbus order orgy at Paris, but I haven't seen any official confirmation that a firm order for 1 A380VIP has been placed.

Why would you want chickens on your A380???  Silly

On a side note.... why don't all the members of A.net pitch in couple hundred bucks and we can all call ourselves owners of an A380??? Now, who's in?

It's not much of a private jet if you have to share it. Yes I'm greedy.

Vijay Mallya from Kingfisher brewery. It has been a TV report in France about 1-2 years ago showing this gentleman saying to John Leahy while on a sales blitz in India he wanted one A380 for private use. He was serious and not kidding.

33 CJAContinental : Weight, gates.
34 EI321 : It cant use all runways however.
35 Scbriml : The A380 uses less runway than a 744, but some taxiway turns might present some challenges. The pavement loading of the A380 is less, I believe, than
36 Viscount724 : But they can't necessarily maneuver on taxiways or ramps which is why quite a few airports to be served by the A380 have been spending a lot of money
