Four Seasons by jet

Fancy a global tour in what is virtually a private jet, but in something somewhat larger than a Gulfstream, in fact a Boeing 757 with just 51 'guests'. 

Hotel group Four Seasons has unveiled its own super executive plane in a bid to recreate its famed hotel experience in the sky.

The luxury brand promises to deliver the full hotel experience at 35,000 feet.  The private jet also includes its own executive, in-flight sous chefs and exclusively stocks Dom Pérignon champagne.

There are, at minimum, 21 hotel-trained crew and staff on board each Four Seasons flight, including three pilots, two engineers, a "journey manager" (travel coordinator), a concierge, and the executive chef.  A physician and a photographer also come along, when adventurous itineraries require it – such as diving in the Maldives' coral reefs or game watching in the Serengeti.
 
The service is now taking bookings for round-the-world trips in 2016.  First up is a 24-day, nine-destination jaunt that starts in Los Angeles and ends in London.  The cost per person is US$132,000 and includes stops – with accommodation at Four Seasons hotels.  www.fourseasons.com/aroundtheworld

Dave Hunter, EGNX

Correct me if I'm wrong but I always understood that a global circumnavigation meant you started and finished from the same point. Now a LAX start point and a LON finishing point does seem to be missing a critical sector to be a "round the world" trip. It leaves out a chunk of 11824'29" to be precise. So it is not even a 70% of a circumnavigation. Somebody needs to have a look at a globe to refresh their geographical knowledge.
