Operated by Global Jet on his behalf, the aircraft, registered as P4-BDL, offers comfort for 50 passengers.

Hong Kong real estate tycoon Joseph Lau claims the top spot with his Boeing 787-8 VIP, a $367 million investment. Confusion persists regarding the aircraft type, with some sources citing a Boeing 747-8 VIP. However, Boeing’s announcement in 2007 confirmed Lau’s order for a more compact 787-8 VIP. Customization costs surpassed double the original price, reaching an astounding $367 million.

As these high-flying individuals continue to redefine luxury in the skies, their private jets serve as flying testaments to the limitless extravagance that money can buy.

Lau is said to have invested approximately $153 million in purchasing this aircraft, typically designed to seat up to 250 people. Reports indicate that the customization costs for Lau’s Boeing surpassed double the original price of the aircraft, reaching a reported total of $367 million.
