Trump’s Private Jet Features Nearly Everything Gold-Plated


Washington: If there’s one thing we can all agree on about Donald Trump, it’s this: he’s no stranger to luxury. So it’s no surprise that his private jet, a Boeing 757-200 that’s been custom-outfitted to meet Mr. Trump’s exacting desires, is quite a bit more luxurious than Jackie Chan’s.

Still, despite its over-the-top lavish finishes that put traditional first class cabins to shame, “Trump Force One” – the unofficial name for the aircraft – may actually be a much more economical option than Air Force One, the official aircraft assigned to transporting the President of the United States.

In May 2012, the Congressional Research Service reported that the cost of operating Air Force One is $179,750 per hour, a figure which includes “fuel, flight consumables, depot repairs, aircraft overhaul and engine overhaul.” While exact figures for Trump Force One’s hourly operating costs are unknown, a standard Boeing 757 is known to cost between $8,000-$13,000 per hour to operate, which means Trump’s hourly costs probably fall around the 5-7% mark of those incurred by Air Force One. It’s not quite comparing apples to apples, given that Air Force One comes equipped with military-grade defense systems, but the numbers are still crystal clear: if Trump flies in his own jet as President, it could actually lead to some significant taxpayer savings.
