Financial constraints force most people to suffer the ever increasing hassles and indignities of commercial airline travel, from slow-moving lines to intrusive security screenings and nonexistent snacks to surly fellow travelers who won't stop hogging the armrest. If you can afford it, it's best to fly private. Some opt for fractional ownership through companies such as NetJets, while folks with the big bucks spring for something more glam, such as an eight-passenger $10 million-plus Learjet 60 XR or sleek and sexy 16-seat Gulfstream G650 that comes with the gut-wrenching price tag of nearly $60 million. Since size really does matter to some, there are titanic wide-body airliners with customized interiors that can (and often do) include several lounges, bedroom cabins, multiple lavatories and state-of-the-art entertainment systems.
