Flying style of the rich: Inside Trump’s $100mn plane

Glasgow: If you’ve got it, flaunt it – and Donald Trump certainly did that on Friday when he allowed cameras to take a peek inside his ultra-luxurious plane in Glasgow. The property magnate showed off his luxury Boeing 757 jet and Sikorsky 76B helicopter as he announced the Trump Organisation’s official partnership with Prestwick.

The jet is certainly not your average private plane. The jet, said to be worth USD $100 million, features a bedroom that puts most airline’s first class suites to shame

The DailyMail reports the 757 interior features a lounge room with L-shaped couches and 52-inch flatscreen TV, and a bathroom with a circular shower and marble sinks with gold faucets.

Aside from the spacious lounge area, comfy sofas, a gourmet kitchen, and a private bedroom with a double bed, there are some amenities that will make the economy flight you booked for your upcoming vacation feel a bit inadequate.

There is sleek cream seating embossed with the Trump family crest and walnut tables and cabinets.

A few of the most outrageous features of Donald Trump‘s private jet include a toilet that resembles a throne — it’s hidden under a white leather chair that flips up to reveal the toilet. There is a roomy circular shower and the ultimate in airplane luxury — 24-karat gold seat belt buckles on the white leather seating. Nothing says on-board safety like a sturdy gold seat belt buckle!

Glasgow Prestwick Airport has reportedly been running at a loss and Trumps plans to bring more private flights into the airport may be its saving grace. He hopes that tourists who are heading to his multi-million dollar Trump Turnberry Resort will land at the airport in Glasgow, something that will benefit both the Trump Organization and the airport.

The Trump Turnberry resort is scheduled to be completed in 2016. Trump purchased the golf course and resort in April for an estimated $63 million. He plans to invest a rumored $380 million into refurbishing the resort’s hotel, complete with a brand new ballroom and completely redesigned suites.

During the resort’s transformation, Trump will be jetting back and forth from the US to Glasgow in style, with his $100 million jet at the ready, complete with monogrammed pillows to rest his head on.
