If I owned that I would invite whoever was President to go for a ride and see what a real baller plane looks like.

All that house looking furniture is all well and good on the ground. It'll go to shit when they hit major turbulence. I've always been extra good about wearing a seat belt since I'd rather err on the safe side and not peel my bloody face off the ceiling.

Baller. I could probably swing a paper airplane with a bitching crayon color scheme.

Unless one plans to use it as a primary residence, and even then, it's a stupendous waste of money, regardless of HOW well-off one is.

Factor in operating, maintainence costs and scheduled inspections. I would imagine there are additional fees for landing, docking and parking anywhere it goes, etc.,etc., etc.

No, not interested, nor impressed. If I can afford such things, I needn't go to them, let them come to ME.

It sure would make being a member of the "Mile High Club" ....a lot more memorable, rather than those cooped up little shitters on a normal plane.

Unless they live somewhere I want to visit. Money is relative. If the company is worth 200-300 Billion, what's a paltry 400 million ?

Most likely it's going to one of the ME rulers who are swimming in oil money.

Would be really cool, if they made the actual plane like the model....with the clear fuselage Talk about a view! I'm holding onto my money until that version comes on the market.
