Inside The Saudi Prince's Flying Palace

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It's a long flight from Saudi Arabia to Le Cap d'Antibes or Monaco or London--what's a Saudi prince drowning in petro-dollars to do? Buy a custom flying palace naturally, so that no moment passes without the comforts of home.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud spent $485 million on the custom Airbus A380, with interior and amenities designed by British firm Design Q.

Now, courtesy of the Daily Mail - here is a tour of the prince's flying mansion.

The plane usually seats 600, but lots of room had to be cleared for various perks. Naturally, there's an on-board garage, so that the prince can be driven right to the threshold of of the airplane's elevator. After arrival, he can retire to his master suite--one of five with king-size beds, and computer generated prayer mats which always face Mecca (one must always be humble); up to 20 extra-guests have to make due in sleepers that are the equivalent of first class.

But the real insanity begins elsewhere on the plane's three floors: There's a Turkish bath, a concert hall that seats ten and has a baby grand piano; a boardroom with a holographic projector; and a full-size steamroom. The most entertaining perk is a "Wellbeing Room" it has a floor upon which projects an enormous image of what the plane is flying over; thus creating a "magic carpet" effect.

The total cost however comes to ~ 485 Million Dollars; excluding the Rolce Royce of course, parked in the built-in garage.

Such vulgarity from the Saudi's. Money really doesn't buy taste.

Just think if umar was around today he would be just as bad, though I suspect he may have his own steamroom, where him and his ahem male visitors go...:)

Its not just vulgar - He is exposing the idiotic and assinine state of the al-saud family.

These pictures should be collected and exposed as they, will, on the streets of Riyadh and Dhahran, bring a revolution. Maybe, someone should send it to saudi arab studying newsgroups in universties.

Now, with the internet, they get pornography without a pay and supporting all those businesses.
