Embraer Lineage 1000: The $74,000,000.00 flight


Look out burgeoning millionaires. The days of scouting for Gulf-streams are over. Make way for the new Embraer Lineage 1000, dubbed, the “Kyoto Airship.”

Embraer, a Brazilian airplane manufacturer, said that they’d imagined what a Japanese businessman would want in an airplane. Their seats are lowered, and allow for traditional tatami style dining (the type where you get to sit on the floor). And, although sky-lights aren’t a new feature in private aviation, this is the first time skylights have been offered on a jet that can cruise at 35,000 feet.

The inside is leather with embroidered cherry blossom trees running through the cabin. Dark wood furniture, features a living room, separate dining room, fully stocked and equipped kitchen replete with espresso machines, dishwasher, and ovens, Wi-Fi, televisions galore, and Apple docking stations.

The price tag? A cool $74 million. Per plane.


“We’ve proven to ourselves that we can make this, and when a Lineage customer is ready to order this aeroplane, we will make it,” Embraer’s vice president of interior design Jay Beever told Business Insider.
