Equipped with multiple big-screen TVs, a fresh air circulation system and 195 square feet for luggage storage, Musk’s 99-foot-long luxury jet also has folding tables on the side of the aircraft that can be combined to create a large dining table for banquet dinners when guests are onboard. There’s also a VIP room with sliding doors for business meetings. All of the sofas can be converted into beds.
