You won't believe how luxurious the airplane is.

The Four Seasons recently debuted its enormous private jet, designed to fly the super rich around the world in style, and the amount of luxury it offers is pretty incredible.

The sleek black jet is a reconfigured Boeing 757, reports Bloomberg, and it has 52 lay-flat seats. Flying on it is pretty much nothing like your typical air travel experience:

The idea is to apply the famous service standards of their hotels at 35,000 feet.

There are, at minimum, 21 hotel-trained crew and staff on board each Four Seasons flight, including three pilots, two engineers, a “journey manager” (travel coordinator), a concierge, and an executive chef. A physician and a photographer also come along, when adventurous itineraries—such as diving the Maldives’ coral reefs or game watching in the Serengeti—require it.

Itineraries are planned to avoid long hauls. On around-the-world tours, flight times range from 3.5 hours to 8 hours, with an average of 6 hours, excluding short “hopper flights,” such as Istanbul to Ephesus or Mumbai to Agra. Essentially it’s an all-first shuttle from one Four Seasons resort property to the next, shielding you from ever having to manage a single travel hassle yourself. All accommodation, meals, drinks, ground transportation, and even custom excursions are inclusive.

The food is pretty amazing too, with menu options such as branzino with lobster and, of course, caviar and Dom Perignon.

A three-week trip around the world on the jet, including stops at 5-star hotels, costs $119,000.

For many more details of the incredible jet, head to Bloomberg.
