Inside the world’s most popular business jet | CNBC International

You’ve just made your
first 100 million dollars and you want to know how far the
dollar can go for your own private jet. Here’s what money can buy. The Phenom 300 is the
most delivered business jet in the world right now, so it’s a
popular one for business executives. Let’s see how it works. It can seat at least six people.
You’ve got a couple other areas where you can make
room for others. This is the tray table,
so let’s give this a shot. You share the tray table with
the person across from you. Here you have a place where
you could put pens, you have a charger,
a universal outlet, and you have a place to plug
into headphones too. Also, what’s interesting is
you have a cockpit call, even though it’s only a six person
jet, you can actually call the cockpit. Let’s see, does the seat
recline on a private jet? Ah, there we go! If you don’t want to face the person
sitting next to you, well, no problem, you can just hit this latch, and
you can turn to face this guy. Even though it’s only
a six-person jet, you still have a no smoking
sign, and a seatbelt sign. And there’s even
an electronic sign. So just because you’re
flying in a private jet doesn’t mean you’re
immune to those things. This is the galley, it’s right
behind the flight deck. In here, you’ve got your
glasses, your snacks. This isn’t an official seat, but it’s a
nice place to be if you’re hungry. The Phenom 300 starts
at $10 million. But if this one’s a little bit too
cramped for you, fear not, we can go take a look
at the Legacy 500. Starting price?
$21 million. You have a little bit more room for dining,
for your laptop, whatever you need. You have two cupholders
instead of one. Over here, it’s actually a screen,
so you can control your lighting with a little LCD screen.
You’ve got a table light. From my seat I’m able to control the
entire movie for the entire flight I just have to click here and I can
control what movie we’re watching. I like that power. Same thing with music, from here, you
can control the music for the entire plane. Alright, let’s check out
the recline on this one. Not bad. So for long flights, what you do is
you just combine two seats into one and well it turns
into a flatbed. You’ve got screens
everywhere you look. There’s no such thing as
a bad seat on this plane. And this is the Legacy 650.
The price tag? $25 million. The Legacy 650 has a lot of
similarities to the Legacy 500, same sort of features. On the Legacy 650 you also have to share
a table with the person next to you as well. So, it doesn’t matter if
you have a private jet, looks like you’re sharing
a table when you eat. So for that extra $4 million you
just get a couple more seats in there and a pretty spacious feel. The first thing you really notice though,
when you get on the Legacy 650, isn’t really anything in here, it’s
what’s at the back of the plane. Let’s check that out. The back area of the plane allows you to
escape from the main cabin and have your own private
space back here, where you can just take a breath and
relax as you get to your destination. The one downside I’ll say though, is if
you want to open and close the windows, you have to do it manually. You can also decide which way you’re
facing, so, right now I’m facing forward but I can change that. It’s kind of like a dance. Well my time on the jets
has come to an end.

  1. So u think they charge millions more just for cup holders and seats? Come on. Head over to the cockpit and ask a pilot then!

  2. A "place to store pens"?

    This muslim talking head is a complete IDIOT! You know this fukktard voted for hillary as he is dumber than a rock!

  3. I'm just saying renting, buying a jet Carr, leasing, loaning a jet is way cheaper even in the long run. Don't buy this unless u use it for business and u need to quickly get to somewhere

  4. This can hardly be considered a business jet. Just renovate a used CRJ and have the range of a 777, along with everything a legacy 650 has with that 10 mil.

  5. ??? There is a big difference between the 500 & 650. The 650 has twice as much cabin space (1650 cuft) as the 500 (825 cuft) & has almost twice as much space internally for baggage – well worth the extra $4 million.

  6. Is there a category: "least informative videos about private jets". If yes, you just won first price

  7. Its funny that most airlines business class seem to have more confortable seats then these. It doesnt even turn into a flat bed. A private jet and you cant even lie down properly, lol.

  8. If i had 1 million going for the legacy 650 just cuz of that extra private space which looks cozy.

  9. Did Anyone Notice The Fact That All Those Planes Were Embraer's But At The End It Said It Was Sponsored By Airbus…

  10. If i had 21million jus laying around i shur wouldnt spent it on a plane .. Plus i didnt see anything worth millions besides the NAME

  11. Jets are not a luxury you dumbass, they are a necessity. Anyone that has ever flown a small plane knows just how uncomfortable they are

  12. thank you mr. end, we've no problem with the jets but we've problem with jet price tag. Was it an indian ruppie? mean divide by 25, 25 million become 1 million though still overpriced (all the screen you immazed by cost less than 10 thousand include pilot cabinet. We better investigate such tags with US trade dept.

  13. This guy knows nothing about private jets and business aviation. And judging by how crudely he behaves and treats someone else's bizjets, he won't ever be aloud back in one again.

  14. This guy dosen't even know the "ABC" of jets!!! 25M worth jet and the feature he tells about is how its chair rotates!!!

  15. why pay 21 million when you can get a business class seats on a huge airbus? Kinda useless unless someone does not want to wait(or go according to their own time ) or go through airport security. Are rich people that stupid to waste money for such a trivial thing? generally not unless you have a billion and don't know what to do with it.
    Usually if a person is smart enough to earn a 100 million then he is smart enough to not buy such stupid jets for travel.

  16. I was going to buy the Phenom 300, but then found out it only had one cup holder, so I went with the Legacy 500 because it had 2.

  17. Why would you waste your time maintaining this, no matter how rich you are…There are companies that you can just call 24/7 that can take you anywhere.

  18. I can't believe CNBC assigned this guy to do this. I don't think I've ever seen someone who's so clueless about what he's talking about. He literally pronounced it a "fenum 300"

  19. Flying a small jet in the sky in like flying a small cheap Honda car on the freeway. It shakes and it’s unreliable. Dangerous. The wind can knock the plane off the elevation making you vomit.
