The Sultan of Brunei's Boeing 747-430

The head of state of the tiny, oil-rich nation of Brunei on the island of Borneo, the Sultan is reputedly the richest monarch in the world. The Sultan bought the aircraft brand-new for $100 million or more using Lufthansa as a conduit, hence the -30, which is Boeing's customer code for the German airline. Then he had it fitted with a special interior and features such as washbasins of solid-gold and Lalique crystal at an additional cost of some $120 million. The 747-400 is the Sultan of Brunei's largest aircraft, but His Majesty the Sultan's Flight also operates several other VVIP widebody jets, among them two Airbus A340s and a 767.
