    I got to go into King Hussein's L-1011. I had to wear a smock and footies as if I was going into a germ free environment.

    I think it's too gaudy! To think, ruining a perfectly good airplane!

    I find it quite sick really specialy as the middle east countries keep calling the Western nations greedy capitalist infidels perhaps they should look a bit closer to home.
    Apart from that gold taps and sinks are not practical anyway its just showing off and for myself I cant stand boasters.

    They'd be more comfortable than being stuck at the back of commercial airliner...

    The Sultan of Brunei is one of the richest perosns in the World... By the way, Brunei lays in South-East Asia... So no Middle East...

    When I was like 10, we had an article about him in the English Project (or what was the name...) school book...

    His citizen are living in very comfort but their numbers are like 200,000 or something lie a very small number...

    pbfoot, nice pictures. The one with the "café sofa" is posted twice...

    I'd rather have a Lightning has my own personal ride, with accompanying tankers of course.
