Getting a chance to fly in a highly-specialized private Boeing 767 customized for Qatari royal family sounds like a great opportunity for any aviation influencer. However, aviation blogger Sam Chui recently got a once-in-a-lifetime experience to fly in the ‘head of state configured’ Jumbo as the sole passenger onboard. Sam documented the four-hour flight from Ontario, Canada to Arizona, US, giving exclusive details of the lavish interiors that include a master bedroom with a double bed and en-suite, and a conference room with a reclining ‘throne’ seat. In his detailed blog post and YouTube video, Sam gives us a complete virtual tour of the uber-luxurious private jet that was previously owned by the Qatari royal family, describing it as his ‘greatest flight of 2019 so far’. The Boeing 747-SP was built in 1979 and changed several hands before being acquired by Qatar Amiri Flight, where it was in service till 2018.
