Kitted out with an entertainment lounge, dining area and en-suite bedroom with a 42 inch TV, it’s not hard to see why.
The master bedroom comes equipped with a dressing room and washroom built for two, including a shower that can hold up to 210 gallons of water.
For those who are simply VIP and not VVIP guests, there are 18 full flat seats similar to those found in business class cabins, and six seats equivalent to those in premium economy.
Travellers will receive tablets to control lighting, window shades, audio and flight-attendant requests.
The central sofa can also be separated or brought together to make a bed-like surface at the touch of a button.
Though normally intended to carry between 240 and 335 people, the luxury Boeing has a capacity of 40 passengers, with the main lounge accommodating 16 comfortably.
