We love a special jet, and there is no more special than Four Season’s little black number revealed today to the world’s press. This is the basically the Orient Express for the 21st century, carefully transporting 52 very exclusive passengers on a money-can’t-buy itinerary of a lifetime.

Working in partnership with Four Seasons Hotels, TCS Expeditions and Iacobucci HF Aerospace as their preferred design partner, (and a favourite of ours) Factorydesign has helped define the Four Seasons Private Jet Experience. Designing luxury cabin interiors and state-of-the-art flatbed leather seats to create a unique cabin for their guests, Four Seasons continues to re-imagine luxury hospitality with the introduction of the hotel industry’s first fully branded jet experience. Passengers will be arranged in one of the aircraft’s most spacious layouts, featuring just 13 rows of 2 x 2 fully flat bed seats.

This very special 757 is all about contemporary design touches fused with luxurious finishes. We love the interior, and feel private jet operators could learn a thing or two, as this understated look is the future of the luxury market. From the hand-crafted leather flatbed seats by specialised aerospace Italian designer Iacobucci and hand-woven woollen carpeting to fine tableware, cosy Mongolian cashmere blankets and cabin crew uniforms, no detail has been overlooked. The exterior matches the impressive interior of the aircraft – and there’s no denying we love a black aircraft here at TheDesignAir. We love the design aesthetic thanks to a high-gloss black finish and interestingly the largest ever version of the iconic Four Seasons tree logo.

At £63,000 these trips far exceed the prices paid on round the world cruises, but the experience is unbeatable. From Dom Perignon to Bvlgari amenity kits, the private jet also includes its own executive and sous in-flight chefs. Chef Kerry Sear said: ‘Our aim is to recreate the hotel experience on the Four Seasons Private Jet, which means creating innovative meals using fresh ingredients, served on the finest tableware and linens, all with impeccable Four Seasons service. But you aren’t just paying a hefty price tag for the 10 crew who accompany you on the trip, but the hotel accomodation (Four Seasons of course), ground transportation and planned excursions as well as all meals and beverages throughout the trip.

 

One itinerary for example would include 24 days split between Los Angeles – Kona – Bora Bora – Sydney – Bali – Chiang Mai – Taj Mahal and Mumbai – Prague – London. However, if one of their itineraries don’t float your boat, you could always charter the black bird. Now then, where’s our black Amex?

    All comming along with 0 privacy. I’d rather go with the Ethiad 380 cabins, thank you.

      This is a narrowbody plane so of course there’s no privacy. I like Etihad’s residences and apartments but you can’t compare the first class privacy of this to a true first class suite on an Etihad a380. This is amazing for a small narrowbody plane.

  3. This looks awesome. Who woudn’t like to travel in such conditions even though it’s a narrow 757? It still gives you a privacy feeling. It’s a great thing if you are traveling with other friends. You just can’t complain about this. The luxurious finishes and the lights are spot on!
