Here's What It's Like to Fly in a $36 Million Private Jet

It's the only way to travel... if you can spare $5,500 per hour for a charter.

If you've ever dreamed of what it would be like to experience one of the most elite private flying experiences on earth — perhaps a fantasy you've had when you're in the midst of a particularly hellish coach-class episode — now's your chance to go aboard. Well, at least by way of a video tour hosted by Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles' James Harris.

James hopped on board a Gulfstream GIV SP, available through private jet company JetSmarter, where members who pay $15,000 a year can fly on the company’s shared, scheduled private jet flights, book charter flights, or hop on empty-leg flights. JetSmarter partner JetEdge, provided our inside access to the jet, which originally sold at (wait for it) $36 million.

Calling it "the ultimate way to fly," Harris showed off the aircraft, which seats 13 people, sleeps up to six people at any one time, and has onboard Wi-Fi. "So you can text and email so you don’t skip a beat whilst you’re on board," he gushed — and with good reason. This is not the kind of plane you want to fly without access to Instagram for the mic drop of all travel bragging rights.

"Best part," James said, "You have a full on-board galley kitchen so your chef can prepare meals and serve them to you right at your seat." Don't forget the Champagne, of course.

"I can’t think of a better way anyone would want to travel," Harris said, "That’s what I call luxury!" Indeed. But if this plane is just a tad out of reach for your next trip, consider a few ways normal people can actually fly private.
