    Default Abramovich to use Airbus A380 as private jet

    Its a bit big just for him but he's got the money to have anything he wants.

    Quote Originally Posted by PARIS (AFP)
    The billionaire Russian owner of Chelsea football club, Roman Abramovich, has ordered an Airbus A380, the world's biggest airliner, for use as his private jet, a report said Wednesday.


    French newspaper Le Figaro, which did not cite sources, said Abramovich was the mystery buyer behind an order for an A380 VIP, which was revealed by Airbus at the Paris Air Show in June this year.

    The doubledecker A380, which enters service later this year, is capable of carrying 840 passengers, measures 73 metres in length (239-feet) and towers over its biggest rival, the Boeing 747.

    Airbus sales director John Leahy had told AFP about the order in June, saying it would be for use by the buyer "and his entourage."

    I suppose once he's got it, he can live in it. Too much money sends people crazy.
    Another insightful post by Baldy!!

    well the average cost to buy one at the moment is nearly $500,000,000.00 (yes thats five hundred million) and the waiting list is getting longer as there have been loads of delays.

    The normal version is a bit cheaper at $316,000,000.00 but that was over a year ago.

    Doubt it as I think he's only a Millionaire and you need to be a billionaire to bu, own and run an A380.

    Apparently Abramovich is only the second or third person to order one for private use.
