An Airbus As Birthday Present

Fri Nov 02, 2007 2:57 pm

http://news.ert.gr/en/c/11/28263.asp


India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, has bought his wife a luxury jet with entertainment cabins, a sky bar and fancy showers for her birthday, a newspaper said on Friday. Ambani, who owns the country’s biggest private company, Reliance Industries Ltd, gifted the $60 million Airbus plane to wife Neeta on her 44th birthday on Thursday, the Mumbai Mirror newspaper said. The jet is custom-fitted with an office and a cabin with game consoles, music systems, satellite television and wireless communication, the report said. Ét also has a master bedroom, a bathroom with a range of showers and a bar with mood lighting. The newspaper said Airbus sources had confirmed the sale and the jet had arrived at New Delhi’s airport and would be brought to Mumbai soon. A spokesman for Reliance, estimated to have a market capitalization of nearly $100 billion, told Reuters, "we are neither denying nor confirming the report".

With business interests ranging from oil to retail and biotechnology, Ambani is not known to shy away from conspicuous consumption. He is building a $1-billion home in India’s financial capital of Mumbai, considered to be one of the world’s most expensive houses, local media reports have said. The 27-storey home, for a family of six, with a helipad, health club and six floors for car parking and 600 staff, has awed India’s rich. But it has also drawn criticism as an edifice to vulgarity in a country where hundreds of millions live in crushing poverty.

Indian families tend to live together.....with parents, in-laws, etc.....so, the building will probably be well occupied by several close family members apart from wife and children....plus of course, rooms for the hundreds of servants.. Big grin

The Airbus gift compared to some private jets is rather tame, very nice though. The house on the other hand... extravagance at it's worst.

Is he trying to make up for lack of something else????

I mean, shouldn't a businessman realize opportunity cost? what else could you with $1 billion US?

I wonder if I could get 1 million from him.....would he notice?


If I got the plane for my 44th, I'd expect a private island with an airport for my 50th. Complete with it's own 27 story house. 800 servants this time.

The $ 1 billion house will be his functional business headquarter. Based on current valuation of Reliance and his share of ownership in it, he is worth around $ 50 billion. If the Indian market keeps zooming up, he will soon be the richest man in the world.

If news reports are accurate, the aircraft has been registered as VT-IAH and is currently in BOM. Hopefully Hawk21M can confirm.

While googling for this news, there was a separate story about Mr. Ambani & family visiting a temple in Jaipur on Friday. Perhaps they flew their new toy to get there

In his case it's going to be only six family members. Mom, wife, Mukesh and the three children.

Yes, a helicopter will take off in a tornado all by itself without incident or damage and even without the engine turning. The difficult part is the landing and lack of destruction upon landing.

Most of the posts on this subject come from people who know little or nothing about the person being discussed.....the Ambani's are the largest industrial house in India and are known to be generous donors to charity....they employ thousands of people and have made several thousands of investors very very rich....Mukesh's father was the pioneer of mass stock market interest in India, which was once restricted to a select few brokers....as such, the family gives back a lot to the community and continues to do so....

As for the extravagance, some seem to be almost saying that Mukesh is the first billionaire in the world to live extravagantly!! One could point out umpteen number of examples in the west, who live extravagantly and do absolutely nothing in the way of charity....and then there are the umpteen examples in the west, of rich people who donate selflessly to various causes......whether the Ambani's display of wealth is excessive or not, is something subjective....zeroing in on the 27 storey building, the $bn tag and the gifted plane and drawing conclusions from that is extremely one-sided......

Moreover, the point that an India billionaire should not spend money like this, because there are kids starving in India, etc., is a favorite topic of most in the west....however, it is critical to note that this family has been one of the leaders in the current economic boom in India, bringing employment and wealth to millions literally..

As pointed out, the 27 storeyed building will probably be partly office and partly residential and not just one huge residential building as the reporters have successfully lead us all to believe....further, considering that property prices in Mumbai are at all-time high levels, even the most ordinary apartments in the city command astonishing prices today...

And lastly, in typical Ambani style, Mukesh has 'gifted' this plane to his wife, which as pointed out, will be mostly used by Mukesh himself for his business travel.....I'm quite sure there must be some income tax benefit somewhere in this deal....so, he gets the publicity as well as the tax benefit  smile 

Once again, I'm not trying to justify the extravagance....just giving the "other side" of the picture...

True.
Most comments about Mukesh Ambani are from People not aware of what he does for charity.
His personality is of a very simple person too.

India has its problems & One M.A. cannot solve all of it,but a small bit & thats what he does.

Yes, and with a smarter, updated livery too. From the title on the front of the A319, it seems Airbus is now calling their entire private line above the Elite and below the A380 as "Prestige". Was "Airbus Corporate Jet" dropped to just refer to the company entity handling these private and corporate sales?

Excellent post! I was hoping someone would save me the trouble of reminding people that what he is doing is not bad or evil or even selfish, its just life on a different scale. He's just spending his money, buying the things he needs, and being normal. People with this level of wealth just live life on a different scale than most but what we all do with our money is our own business, our own decision. BTW what are taxes like in India, I can't imagine they are lower than in the USA where taxes are, in general, lower than most of the industrialized world. I know there is a constant discussion here in the USA of what is "fair share" of taxes for people to pay.

Why do you always single out the rich in India?....the same can be said for the rich anywhere in the world.....a lot of the wealth generated by western nations today is from exports to developing countries like India....and once again, you have not read a word of the post above.....when you say "The guy could do something for the needy instead of wasting a billion on a house"....I have mentioned that the Ambani's are one of the largest donors to charity and THE largest creators of jobs and wealth in the private sector....moreover, a billion dollar house in Mumbai is not really as big a deal today as it would have been a few years ago, given the sky high property prices there today....

I still think he should help India out by at least speaking out and starting/supporting programs to give the poor jobs and a decent income.
