For a trip whose price tag begins at US$100,000, it’s certainly a requisite for potential guests to have some advanced notice. As such, following upon the wild success of its 2015 lineup, the Four Seasons Jet has recently announced its set of itineraries for 2016. It’s the hotel industry’s first fully branded private jet, and it’s luxe to say the least. The four itineraries have guests traveling around the globe for a bit over three weeks in a Boeing 757, refitted with 52 lie-flat seats exclusively made in Italy, Wi-Fi, personal entertainment systems, and—new for 2016—Dom Pérignon champagne. And though the initial cost may be steep, it’s easy flying from there, as all transportation, excursions, meals, and stays at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts are included.
- Timeless Discoveries: An Around the World Journey (Jan. 26–Feb. 18) This classic jet-set mixes cities, sites, and natural beauty, hopping from Los Angeles to Kona, Bora Bora, Sydney, Bali, Chiang Mai, the Taj Mahal and Mumbai, Prague, and London.
